Enjoyable lunch

Met friends from out of town here for lunch and it was very tasty! The salads were very fresh and the mutton stew was wonderful.

IPCC is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Interesting, informative, and very nicely lad out. We happened to be there on a day that the Zia's and the Zuni's were dancing. Very enjoyable. We went back the next day for the Friday night patio fun. Music, great food, and a really good time. $10 gets you in the... More

This is an informative and interesting "museum" that will help visitors get a better understanding of the pueblos they might be visiting in New Mexico. If possible, go on a day when there are demonstrations of Native American dances in the Center's courtyard (I think usually on Sunday, but might also be held on other days). The gift shop has...

My husband and I have visited the museum many times to see the interesting exhibits & displays down stairs. There are small representations exhibiting Pueblo life as it was before tribes were forced to live on reservations. There are many very old photos of chiefs and native people in their beautiful hand made attire as their handicrafts and foods are... More

It was an awesome experience. It was a moment to absorb the history of native Americans. We also got to meet and briefly talk with a Native American gentleman which I wanted to always do to understand their perspective. I liked the museum self tour but only thing I wish was more artifacts. I also wish their dance was being... More

The museum was interesting and added a personal touch to Native American culture. The speaker introducing the dances, however, left a great deal to be desired. He tended to ramble on without really conveying any knowledge. Really, they museum is wasting an incredible opportunity to convey more knowledge and cultural appreciation to its audience by failing to truly explain the... More
