Museum of Indian Arts and Culture

To walk through the doors of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, a division of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, is to walk into the diverse worlds, sacred spaces and distinctive communities of the Pueblo, Navajo (Diné) and Apache cultures of the Southwest.

The museum invites visitors to tap into the story, spirit and sprawling cultural landscapes of the region’s Native peoples, past and present. Exhibitions highlight Native scholarship, oral histories, song and displays of select objects from the most comprehensive archaeological collections in the United States. The museum’s close work with Native communities ensures that the visitor experience is authentic, culturally sensitive and inspired by the beauty and power of Native art, language, ritual and other cherished expressions of daily life.
