“Native American History”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

This is a must see place to go. The displays, history and crafts are outstanding. If you go during Native American Indian Week, you'll be treated to ceremonial dances by authentic Indian dancers in their traditional attire. It's abeautiful expereince.

“Eat here too!”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

The center is really interesting because of the Native American exibits; there are seasonal displays downstairs throughout the year and the gingerbread houses in December are great. There is also a terrific restaurant serving New Mexican food, and the prices are moderate.

“Interesting to visit and great food!”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

This was on our "To do" list but since we stayed at the nearby Holiday Inn Express, we walked over there several times.

The displays are fascinating and there is a historical "timeline" of the pueblos, including old photographs and newspaper articles. Great displays of Pueblo crafts.

We loved the "Build your own breakfast" at the restaurant and had it several times. Basically, you pick one item from each of four lists so you can, literally, build your own breakfast! Good food, yum.

There is plenty of free parking, lots of brochures and a very helpful staff. There are various events held as well as dances regularly.

“unexpected”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

On my way to the airport I stopped at the Cultural Center. I like musinc and they have Pueblo Indian dances every couple hours that I wanted to see and hear. I got there for a very professional group of dancers and enjoyed their buffalo dance a lot. The danceres were so friendly and open about their traditions. After a great lunch in the restaurant of amazing lamb posole and stew suddenly I heard bagpipes! A group of pipers from Scotland had arranged to play with the drummers of the dance group and they were jamming in the patio. It was outrageous. Guys in kilts dancing with the Pueblo group and visitors then everyone playing "Amazing Grace" on bagpipes and the big drums from the pueblo. Wow.
