“Cute cafe and nice upstairs museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

We stopped here for the first time and had some awesome carrot cake, espresso, and tea and the little cafe inside. The ladies were so friendly, and there are funny signs all around to read. Upstairs are some cultural and art exhibits to look at. No entry fee. Note that this is also the Amtrak station for Gallup, and there is a small gift shop. Worth a stop for about 20 minutes.

“Amazing as well as informative.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The second floor museum was full of traditional items made by native craftsmen from bygone years and paintings also. The sand painting on the floor was fabulous. There is also a display dedicated to the Navajo Code Talkers who served during World War Two. Without these men the war could have turned out quite differently.

“Native American Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

I love the variety of tribes you can visit. The Navajo (Dine') are great friends, as well as Acoma, Zuni, Laguna, Apache, and others. There is much to learn about living and values that are being embraced by environmentalist that have been a way of life here forever. Give the Native Americans credit! They told us not to destroy the land and destroy for no reason... only now do some of us listen.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Enjoyed the artwork of local students from various schools throughout New Mexico...the storyteller museum was excellent. Great photographs of artists from past years on display as well as weavings, sand painting artwork and pottery. Angela's cafe has delicious soup and sandwiches....thank you friendly Gallupians!
