Fun shop

It was fun to explore this shop. I was looking for a specific kind of vase, but they did not have it. Good pricing, quality, etc. sales staff were very helpful.

They wouldn't let me use the bathroom, had to walk to a gas station, over priced and under quality. Interested in earnings, but was told sold only with a necklace. This is the most unfriendly place, the non native American women just said we just work for them, they make the rules.

This is an excellent craft store with goods from all over the SW. Quality is very good and they have a wide price range. There are many counterfeit Indian crafts these days, and buying from an Indian-operated store helps ensure that your purchases are authentic. And less of the proceeds go to non-Native American middlemen.

The sales people were great very patient with us we shopped for over an hour. Prices much less than we saw in Santa Fe! Recommend as a must do in Albuquerque.

Bien Mur Indian Market Center is located near the Sandia Indian Casino in Albuquerque. They sell beautiful jewelry, made locally. Prices are more than at the Indian street markets in the town squares of Santa Fe and Albuquerque and there is no price haggling, but it might be worth the trip for the large variety and selection of pieces.

Every time I'm in Albuquerque I try to visit Bien Mur. They have beautiful jewelry in all price ranges, and unique pieces from current Native American artists. It's hard to walk away without finding something for yourself or to give as a gift. I have taken many friends and family members here and they all love it as well.

Great selection of Native American arts and crafts. Quality is high. Staff was helpful and not overbearing or pushy. All items are authentic and reasonably priced. Check out the bison across from their parking lot.

We have purchased several items from Bien Mur because of the prices and quality of the works we found there. We love to just stop in occasionally and look over the paintings, the jewelry, and the books. We like the authenticity and power of the works they choose to offer, created by Native American artists and artisans whose skill helps... More

Located on the Sandia Pueblo property opposite the hotel and casino, just east of the Tramway exit from I-25 on the northern edge of Albuquerque, Bien Mur is well worth a stop for those interested in genuine native jewelry, pottery and other crafts. Prices are reasonable and the quality high. The staff are helpful without being bothersome, and one can... More

I brought my mother who has been all over the Southwest here and she said this was one of the best selections of Native American items she has seen. Reasonable prices and the staff was very helpful with questions. And there are bison outside!
