A lovely place to visit along the El Paso Mission Trail. The native dance performance was wonderful, they did several dances and invited the crowd up to dance the final dance with them. Make sure to call and check the times for the performances, as they vary.

The Tigua people really make you feel welcome. I was only a guest at the seminar, so I can't speak to price but everything from child care to food can be taken care of here. The facility is very nice and new. I took the time to drive around the ring road and there are a lot of facilities.

A must stop to try their fantastic Bread that they make and you must schedule a beautiful outing to see their fantastic dancers. It is breath taking to sit their and participate in this experience. You need to stop by when on your way through the Mission Trails. It is a must see!!!

The Tigua Indian Cultural Center and Museum is an outstanding place to learn about the history and the culture of the Tiguas. The Indian dancers were marvelous and taking photos and applauding the dancers were encouraged. The staff at the center were very helpful and informative and patiently answered our questions. Moreover, we found a very nice shop called "Eagle's... More

Have to check times before you visit. Sometimes it's not open when advertised. Makes a great addition to visiting the missions in the area.

Unfortunately we missed the dancing and bread baking. A couple of little shops were open and the Center had beautiful artifacts.
