  • I was glad to see the art and history here. It's very well done and soulful with many Native Quotations among the displays. I wish I could have been here for the dancing or ceremonies, but they were n...  more »

  • Important but overlooked part of history and current affairs. Wonderful place to learn and support native artists and businesses, including the restaurant (delicious chicken street tacos!) and Starbucks across the street. Looks like they have some pretty cool space-to-rent as well!
  • Food was delightful but prices above average for what was served. Also super slow service and no refill on my drink until check came. $12 for 4 street tacos that would be $4 from actual taco truck. Tip added automatically for table of 7.
  • Not very interactive museum. Just walk around the circle looking at artifacts and reading. A couple of video rooms eh. An Indian dance (only 2 dancers) was going on in the courtyard but they weren't proactive enough to move all their hot metal chairs into the little bit of shaded area when it was 100 degrees outside. Over all I didn't really learn anything.
  • A beautiful place, well-designed. It tells the story of native Americans' cultural evolution in a comprehensive way without being too pretentious. Multi-media presentations are scattered throughout and bring history to life. I recommend you plan to eat authentic Native American food at the restaurant there. Lots of good flavors to try. The whole experience is well worth a few hours!
  • Great place. The exhibits are interesting and we'll done. Excellent cafe and gift shop. Native American dances on weekends. My 7 year old granddaughter loved it and learned a lot about Puebloans.
