Through artifacts, artwork and dance visitors can experience the culture of one of America's oldest native cultures. – Overview
Visitors can immerse themselves in the history of 19 Pueblo clans through museum artifacts like jewelry, textiles and art. The clans' oral history and culture are played out in a 260-seat theater with films, drama and dance. Changing exhibits display the work of local Pueblo artists; historic and photographic collections provide a modern look at America's oldest culture.
The traditional dances held on the weekends are a huge draw as performers provide a rare glimpse into Pueblo traditions. Additional dances are scheduled as festivals and events are celebrated throughout the year. If you're really lucky, you might even catch an impromptu performance. The center's cafe offers authentic Pueblo cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are served every day with items like fry bread, posole and enchiladas offered.
Best Albuquerque Museum – If you only have time to visit one museum in Albuquerque, this is it. There is nothing like it anywhere else. I was there 11 years ago and revisited two weeks ago. Because it was Balloon Fiesta week in Albuquerque, they had live dance performances every day, not just on weekends. They also had an arts and crafts show and sale all around the courtyard. We had a great lunch in the restaurant.
evocative displays – even the architecture of the building evokes Pueblo tribal atmosphere. arts, music, dance, and thoughtfully arranged and annotated displays offer unique, inspiring, and fascinating perspective on this part of Native American culture
