Immerse yourself in the pueblo experience through dance cultural performance and food
Jul. 2021
If you don't have time to visit the real pueblos, this is the place to experience their life and food. The cultural dance performances and the stories behind it was very interesting. Long wait time in the resto which took us about an hour combined with waiting for the table and food. The contemporary indigenous food was amazing. Make sure to try one (we had the JUNIPER BRAISED BUFFALO SHORT RIBS). The cactus salad was superb (if you love goat cheese), the pueblo pie (pumpkin is our fave), stew a la carte was just ok. I suggest that you plan your visit coming early for brunch and go for the afternoon cultural show instead of the other way around as we did.

Great experience
Jul. 2021
This is a wonderful overview of history, life, and cultural context of indigenous tribes in New Mexico. There’s any awesome cafe with authentic Indian cuisine. There’s frequently some activity (like, live music, dance or other) going on as well.

Wonderful stop very informative and well presented. The staff was helpful, answered questions, and the had artisans working on site with remarkable and beautifully crafted items to purchase. The gift shop did also. We were glad we stopped!

Do Not miss this place!
Jul. 2021
This place was the highlight of our Route 66 tour from Oklahoma to Kingman, AZ. Very interesting museum, has some kid interactive things, too. The artists stationed in the courtyard made the experience more special, since they often introduced themselves, explained about their work and process. This place ignited my husband to find out more about Native American cultures in general.

I enjoyed several different dance and drum performances while sitting in a shaded area. There were several local artists selling their work in the courtyard. There is a restaurant and gift shop available.

Call before you go.
Jul. 2021
I rated their place a 1 only because their website needs to be updated. It stats it is open Tuesday-Sunday. I arrived Sunday July 4 and the center was closed. There was no note to say holiday hours may differ. My advice is to call before you go.

Great exhibits and food
Jun. 2021
Excellent programs, management and collection. They have the best fry bread in New Mexico, hands down! Worth visiting if just for the cherry pie (seemed to be made with fry bread crust) and the fry bread tacos.

Good stop
Jun. 2021 • Family
Good but I didn't end up spending as long as I expected given the overwhelmingly positive reviews. There are a couple of interesting exhibits, good historical context, and good information about the culture and people. It was a little dry though, very much like a museum. I'd still recommend it if you're looking to kill time and learn something about native people

Worth a special trip
Jun. 2021
The exhibit on important Pueblo women was encouraging, especially in a world where "feminism" and "women's rights" often ignore Women of Color. And given the number of museums that write descriptions from the perspective of those who have promoted genocide, it is important to consider history from the perspective of those who have been remarkably resilient in the face of overwhelming odds. The Pueblo Cultural Center is worth a special trip if you are anywhere in the area!
