Good place to visit to know about Native American history. Museum provides good audio-visual tour. While you are there, don't miss food at Harvest Cafe. We ordered 'feast for two' but it was lot more food and we ended up eating leftovers for dinner.

They have live dancers on the weekends but also have videos of them on weekdays. Watch for community events such as learning how to make fried bread which I missed. The interactive exhibits where one can learn about the various pueblos and their stories at a press of button was great. Fun for adults and kids alike. The gift shop... More

Great facility. Good guides. Thin coverage of so much potential material. I understand that museums have to make decisions about what is covered, the detail in the information and how to present it, but I see the titles of other reviews ("Great overview"; "Good introduction") and I'm lead to believe others had the same experience. Focus seemed to be more... More

Knowing my penchant for museums, we allotted an afternoon for this visit, and were very happy we had. It's not a huge place, but it feels huge when you're in it and going through the wonderful exhibits. They are all extremely well done, and there is so much diverse information about the people, their history, and the changes over time... More

If this is your first time to this area and plan to visit any of the pueblos or want an overview of the wonderful cultures celebrated here, this is a MUST stop. All 19 pueblos contributed ideas and artifacts. It is not a huge museum, but covers all aspects of the continuing history of the people. It is at its... More

If you are at all new to Indian culture, this is an excellent overview of the Pueblo culture-from the Native American point of view. I return to this center every time I come to Albuquerque just to remind myself of where I am. In addition, the center has special exhibits from time to time -- such as an incredible exhibit... More

Well, this place opened my eyes. I became totally aware of indian culture history in New Mexico. Very different from some other area native people history in USA. Which I was more familar to, like Cherokees in southeast. In my country native people, sami people, have had the same kind of history. So this is kind of common shame of... More

Everyone not familiar with the area should learn more about the history of the Pueblo, as New Mexico has so many indian reservations. Native American dances were very interesting, Center was smaller than I thought and didn't take long to go thru. Would have liked more information on the Pueblo life now in 2017 and expectations for the future.
