Vacation Travel Guide
Indian Pueblo Cultural Center showing street scenes

Learn about the 19 Pueblo tribes of New Mexico through exhibits, performances and craft demonstrations at this popular cultural attraction.

Discover the culture, art and history of the Puebloan people of New Mexico as you tour the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Housing a museum rich with artifacts, the cultural center aims to showcase important artistic works and present traditional dance performances in an interactive and informative environment.

Start your visit to the museum on the lower level, which contains artifacts that cover generations of history, art and culture. See pottery, textiles, jewelry and archeological relics that date back up to 1,000 years as you explore the center.

View a collection of 19 murals that were created by prominent Puebloan artists, including Tommy Montoya and Helen Hardin. These visually stunning works cover the importance of the seasons, agriculture and animals to Pueblo life. Learn more about the works by signing up for a guided mural tour, which are held every Friday afternoon.

Temporary exhibitions include Puebloan art alongside historical and educational items. Watch the colorful and entertaining displays of Native American dance by members of several communities, which take place in the courtyard each weekend.

Throughout the year the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center hosts a range of events that range from art exhibitions to fashion shows, to lectures and arts and crafts exhibitions. Visit the center’s official website for details of what’s happening during your stay in Albuquerque.

Among the center’s facilities are a café serving traditional Puebloan food and a shop selling handcrafted art by artisans from New Mexico’s pueblos.

This popular cultural attraction is less than 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) from downtown Albuquerque. There is no public transport to the center, however, from June through to October a free shuttle bus operates from Old Town Albuquerque and the ABQ BioPark on the weekends. For drivers, there is free parking on-site.

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is open daily, except for some public holidays. An admission fee applies for entry, with discounts for seniors and children. Admission is free for children under the age of 5.
