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

A great place to visit to learn all kinds of things about the local Indians of the Southwest. The dances are special, too., the gift shop is fairly priced and the restaurant is delicious!

My friend had some kind of chefs special breakfast with what looked like a poached egg, he said it was one of the best breakfasts he's ever had. I had the Blue Corn Pancakes and Bacon, it was good and filling

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

I had their HUGE Taco and thought it was excellent. The taco shell is a large soft fried bread, we all thought it was excellent. This could easily be a meal for two, but I ate the whole thing! :) We came back two days later.

We were lucky to see a Native American dance by the Laguna Pueblo Indians while we were visiting the museum - a total treat. The museum itself is beautifully done. We are glad we went.

Enjoyed our morning here. Learned a lot about the Pueblo tribes, and almost felt a little guilty for how they've been treated. Gift shop is interesting but pretty pricey for souvenirs. Had a light lunch in the restaurant, which was very good - not your typical museum cafeteria!

We were staying at the Holiday Inn express across the road so thought we would visit after breakfast and before pushing onwards with the Turquoise Trail (review to follow). We were not disappointed! Being from the UK we had no understanding of the pueblo people, their place in US history and their assimilation into the wider culture. The museum unpacked... More
