Visit the National Hispanic Cultural Center
A great place to visit when you come to Albuquerque is the National Hispanic Cultural Center. The center is a backdrop for arts, humanities, and Hispanic culture. Through careful preservation of the past and showcasing the present, the center helps enlighten people each and every day about Hispanic culture not just in Albuquerque, but around the world. It’s an amazing place that deserves a little bit of anyone’s time.
You’ll find a lot of things at the NHCC. It is located along the banks of the Rio Grande and the art museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10am until 5pm. Admission for the museum is only $3 for adults and $2 for seniors. Kids under 16 and NHCC members can get in for free, or if your visit happens to fall on a Sunday, admission is also free.
Programs and exhibits are always changing at the NHCC, and they’re always unique, interesting, and thought-provoking. From visual arts to performing arts, education and the box office, there’s a little something for everyone any time you visit. Come and see the history of Chilean Arpilleras with the Stitching Resistance exhibit. Watch the film Tapia, or view the dance group CONTRA-TIEMPO. The NHCC is a treat for the eyes, ears, and soul.
