Long before the Spanish conquistadors made their way to New Mexico, the region was home to numerous tribes of Pueblo people. Today, the cultures of these indigenous tribes are preserved at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Located about 2 miles northeast of Old Town, this educational facility of Pueblo art and history also hosts a variety of cultural events, including lectures and workshops. 

Recent visitors strongly recommended stopping at the center while in Albuquerque, calling it a "treasure." If you can, try visiting on a day when Pueblo dancers are performing; according to reviewers, it was a highlight of their visit. Travelers are also quick to recommend the Pueblo Harvest Cafe, which diners praised for its traditional dishes.

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission (which includes access to all educational events) costs $8.40 for out-of-state adults; $6.40 for in-state adults, military and seniors; $5.40 for kids ages 5 to 17; and free for kids ages 4 and younger. If you plan to visit the cultural center after touring Old Town, you can hop on the No. 36 bus, which drops you off within feet of the centerTo learn more about the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, visit its official website.
