I usually visit the National Hispanic Cultural Center a couple of times a year. They have several events a year but usually have programs for kids to participate in.

The Torreon is EXCELLENT. The docent in the watch tower was excellent. I totally appreciate it when a docent says "i don't know"...rather than fake it. The complex is in desperate need of a sign that says ENTER HERE....we walked almost the entire campus before finding someone to tell us where the main door was located. Even at the main... More

We were here on a Friday afternoon and viewed the art gallery. The people were friendly and helpful and the art, particularly in the featured display was incredible.

They have a website stating their events. Nice place. I especially enjoy going and hanging out at the new sculpture "Warrior's Repose" by Jacob Sisneros. A place to reflect. Also, they work with the community for events. I went to La Llorna with ABQ High School and Anaya's writing of the play. Good stuff!

M'tucci's Cocina at the National Hispanic Cultural Center is now open on Fridays for lunch and dinner (11 am - 8 pm). They are serving buffet style meals and the restaurant has a full bar license but not great selection of wines. It is so convenient to be able there before a show and the price was very reasonable. We... More

I visited the museum on the campus of the NHCC in May 2016. It is a great musuem. The tower on the campus is also wonderful with beautiful murals inside. In August 2016 I took a cooking class at the Cervantes Institute which is also part of the NHCC campus, great place for spanish language classes.

Had 2 incidents with gang-banger types, both would have resulted in confrontation if I had not walked away, and no security to be seen anywhere. It just... More
