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.

It's not often that a relatively small band of people reside in the same area for nearly a thousand years but the Acoma pueblo people have done so and have survived against difficult odds through their inner strengths, strong traditional beliefs and positive attitude. The...More

After driving for hours and paying 23 dollars per person we were brought up the ancient pueblo. Except that it does not feel like an ancient pueblo. There were generators on all over as heavy construction work was being done on the Native Americans weekend...More

Visit Acoma on your New Mexico trip if you possibly can. If you can only visit one pueblo, Acoma or Taos would be my first choices. The museum is beautiful, and the staff are very welcoming. A comfortable shuttle bus takes you on the brief...More

The drive in to Acoma Pueblo is dramatic. The visitor center has an excellent film and unfortunately the artifacts are being stored at UNM for some reason. But buy the ticket to go to Sky City and you will be delighted. The breath taking views,...More
