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.

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.
