“best for adults”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Attractive building; good though very expensive gift shop; tasty baked goods; the chance to see native dances. What's not to like? However much better for adults. Even the dances are very long and repetitive and exposed to the sun. Would be unbearable in the summer.

“Well worth the visit.”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has several museums plus native Americans' art, crafts, and jewelry. In addition, they have a dancing exhibition on Saturdays at noon. It was very impressive!

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Had a great brunch/lunch at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center - including Christmas sauce (red and green). Both the Cultural Center and their restaurant are definite stops when you are in Albuquerque! Displays were very interesting and native dancing was super!

“Outstanding!!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

I am drawn to Native American history, current way of life, means of sustaining themselves, and also the beautiful products they make. I am a Midwesterner and we have Indian Reservations and tribes that live amongst and with us. So, while in Albuquerque for a 10 day stay, I knew visiting the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center was a must.

There is a lot of information in this center. Of course, much of what you read happened over a long period of time. So, to take it all in in one visit is a lot. To make that easier, however, the center has the information nicely laid out in chronological manner. And, you can take this information in from a variety of sources. Of course, there's a lot to read, but there are also artifacts on display. There are videos to watch. And, you can also experience their Native Fusion cuisine in a cafe within the center.

Even if you don't read every word of history and knowledge, given a sufficient effort you will still come away with a deep sense of sorrow for the journey the Native Americans have made. I would strongly suggest visiting this center. We made an initial trip and will go back for the dancing.
