We arrived on a Saturday and pleased to learn Native Americans were demonstrating some of their dance traditions that day. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. as this was all new to us. The museum displays are very informative. There are a variety of interactive opportunities that provide yet another interesting way to learn about the history, culture and languages of the nineteen Pueblos in New Mexico. The onsite Pueblo Harvest Cafe is excellent. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was delicious.

We visited the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center to learn a little more about the pueblos before we headed north to visit Mesa Verde and the Four Corners area. It is a beautiful facility, but wasn't all that interesting to be perfectly honest.

We did enjoy getting to see the Native dances (we had called ahead to check performance times)--they were definitely the highlight of the visit. If you're planning to see the dances, though, be warned that they're outside in the courtyard and it got very, very hot out there (we had to leave mid-way through to go inside to cool down, as it was over 100 the day we visited).

We also enjoyed visiting with and shopping some of the local tribal vendors who are there selling things.

Finally, we did visit the cafe afterwards, mainly for cool drinks, because it was so hot! We also shared a piece of pueblo pie, which is unique and different from regular pie!

We expected separate stations for each of the 19 pueblos, showing the differences and similarities. Not the case. Rather a lumping of all pueblos under the heading of Tewa. It’s thin on history and details. Caters too much to children, instead of adults. Skip it and skip the restaurant too — poor quality food at high prices. If you want a real experience, visit the Pueblos themselves and the Mead museum in Phoenix.

Not only is this resturant got the BEST huevos rancheros breakfast in Albq. The museum is the most interesting in all of NM. Each of the Pueblo Tribes are represented with their pottery, jewerlry and agricultural experience. We live here and are members so go here when ever we have visitors. It never fails to enchant our out of town friends (and us).
The staff are beyond amazing.
