Very informative, a great introduction to the local culture. The children's Christmas gingerbread houses were adorable. The bookstore had a great selection as well.

Went with a group on a tour and we really enjoyed it. Great exhibits and we learned a lot. Our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. If you're in the area you should check out this Center.

Took my children and they found it to be an "open History book". They enjoyed the different sections of the Center. Listening to their different music, dances, foods, and how they lived/survived. Plan ahead, some days they have Live Native dancers.

The cultural center has a lot to offer and seems to be a unknown jewel. Current and past melds together for historical perspective of the Indian Culture.Cool artwork, and includes a child's perspective.

You will have to check the website or give them a call. Different pueblos have different dances and it also depends on the time of the year.
