Overview
More
The Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum, rich in cultural architecture, serves as the reception center and museum for visitors to the Pueblo of Acoma, as well as a research and community use facility for tribal members. The primary 40,000 square foot Cultural Center is a two story structure with a basement and central courtyard/plaza area. The Cultural Center was designed to represent and recreate the ancestral architectural styles of the Acoma people – which include natural stacked stone and natural mud plastered adobe – while showcasing Acoma Pueblo architecture both past and present. This world class facility is dedicated to the preservation of Acoma history, traditional pottery and other art forms, the repatriation of objects of cultural patrimony and the development of both educational and interpretive programs.

Visitor center nice, new but run pretty laissez faire with limited exhibits. Tour pretty formulaic but setting of Pueblo is extraordinary. Visit takes about 2 hours. They run you by a number of mostly pottery vendors selling fairly similar traditional ware.

This historic site was incredible and the people who live here and who have lived here for over 1500+ years are even more incredible. Their strength, generosity and wisdom are incomparable and this place is a must see on your visit to Albuquerque, New Mexico....More

To think that this pueblo has existed for 1100 years and is still occupied by about 50 Acomas living without electricity or running water is amazing. Tour guide was an Acoma and very knowledgeable of her history. Residents make beautiful pottery to sell.
