This is a very informative and interesting center in this little desert's edge town. Many nights at 7pm free Native Dancers perform for about an hour. Great place to go to on a hot dusty day with kids or just big kids. Friendly people.

Great gift selection at reasonable prices. Historical displays of Montezuma County are worth seeing. Well kept building. It is run by volunteers and they are knowlegable .

The Cultural Center has a nice gift shop. The employees are very knowledgeable , friendly and helpful. We went to an outdoor circular courtyard with bleacher like seating in the back. Jack & Ramona were the Native American singers and dancers. The show was amazing!...More

Nice exhibition with various kinds of better than average art. Really enjoyed the display of bringing water to the region. Picked up some Navaho Cards and pinto bean and Anazai Beans for soups this winter.

We found out that this location does have evening programs in the summer. We were very lucky to see a Lakota dancer, that also played flute and told stories. We had a great time!

I've certainly seen larger, more impactful collections of local history. This is a small collection of scattered items from Ancestral Pueblos, local Cortez residents, and other random pieces. As often is the case in smaller museum like this I found ithe conversation with the volunteers...More
