Stories of the past and present with a look to the future. “This small museum packs a lot of detail on the life and stories of the Pueblos people, the struggles and the beauty of their traditions. I really enjoyed the staff favorites section and the unique connection each person had to the artifacts. The restaurant there is a great way to wrap up the visit. Try the feast for the variety and value. Pueblo pies were excellent we had strawberry rhubarb & mixed berries.”
The real deal! “The cultural experience you will find here is second to none. The permanent exhibit is a fantastic historical and cultural museum. This exhibit is one of the best I’ve seen. The exhibit starts out with a segment on ancient origins of the 19 Pueblos, and brings in their historical encounters with the Spanish, the Mexicans, and the U.S. it goes into detail on many other things, including spirituality, the boarding school years, and much more. They also hold Native American dances every weekend. Highly recommended!”
An intimate, yet exuberant place to be. “Intimate, yet exuberant place to be. This special Indian cultural center is truly magical as well as an experiential wonder. The buffet is both simple yet exquisite, as well as the performing musicians. Never in all the years that I have attended have I ever been disappointed. It is such a great experience in the open air and ambience. Truly a must if you are in Albuquerque New Mexico!”
“This was our first stop on a road trip around New Mexico. It was a valuable introduction to the Native American culture of the state and to the pueblos. We found the exhibits very interesting and really enjoyed talking with the Native American artists in the courtyard.”
