I really enjoyed the exhibits and reading about the history, looking at sculptures, baskets, pottery and photos. The films were amazing, don't miss them! Really nice collections. Beautiful, informative and well worth the admission. Gift shop is pricey.

We stayed for about an hour. We could have lingered much longer had we read all the historical descriptions. We loved the fact that there is a museum that features history and culture along with artistic displays. Well done. We watched one film showing Mrs. Martinez making her pottery and that was very enlightening. The entire facility was beautifully set up and we took a few minutes to explore the nice gift shop but did not dine in the enticing restaurant which probably had more customers than the museum areas but it was around lunch time. Go there!

A lot of culture and storytelling. We had lunch, a private tour, and stayed for the dancing. All were GREAT!

this place was interesting , i enjoyed their special exhibition about the state but it told you very little. i had already been to the indian culture museaum in santa fe so was spolied. great as an intro but adds little if you've already been elsewhere.

Caution: many people have commented how they loved the dancing, but I went on a day when there was no dancing, so this review is for the museum only. It's a waste of time; I walked through in less than 10 minutes. There's a room "100 years of history" that has nothing but a small book's worth of text mounted on the walls. Other rooms have almost nothing to look at. The basement has a small display case for each Pueblo tribe, but the pottery in each one is all recent (last 20 years or so) and is no different from what they sell in the gift shop, and besides, there's not much difference between the different tribes.
