Besides the great little museum we saw Indian dancing, ate lunch at their very good restaurant. It was a great experience. We had been once before many years ago, but this time was even better than it was before.

We spent about 3 hours in the museum and learned a lot about the pueblo peoples and their history. Their history is the history of New Mexico. We will return for the special exhibits and performances.

I visited the cultural center on 09/17/16. It was a must see for me in my visit to New Mexico. I am from the east so the western part of the US is so very different and so is Indian culture. I toured the museum and gift shop. The museum is in a residential area and the mountains are to... More

Well worth the trip, which is a bit out of the usual tourist ways. Excellent shop, as well as displays. And very pleasant restaurant, with some Native American specialties (e.g., fry bread).

I was enthusiastic, even excited, about visiting the Indian Pueblo Museum in Albuquerque! But it turned out to be quite small, with far fewer exhibits and artifacts than I had expected. This is certainly not a major museum. The Native American history represented is thin, with almost nothing about the last 100 years. The walk through was somewhat interesting (though... More

Saturday best day to visit as they have live performances of traditional dances. Some of the exhibits were inspirational. Very inexpensive for family outing. Cafe offers different choices for lunch worth trying.

This is a great stop on any tour of Albuquerque. Wonderful exhibits, experience a dance or performance, then eat at the cafe and enjoy the Indian bread.

If Travellers have a bit of extra time on their hands, this would certainly be a worthwhile stop in Albuquerque as the cultural center provides good insight into the native American culture and traditions. I was fortunate in that during my visit on a Saturday, there was a dance performance by native Americans. There is a very nice restaurant inside... More

While it's a decent place to visit for a hour or so, I was hoping it would be a little more engaging or "richer" (more artifacts or just more Indian "things" to help bring their culture to life in a more vibrant way) I found it well done but a bit dry and a little lacking/cold.
