The place in Albuquerque which I liked the most is Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. I had plan to visit Santa Fe but unfortunately the bus for railway station didn't show and I had to cancel the plan. After geeing back to hotel and taking some rest, I planned to visit Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. It was best decision of that day and I thoroughly enjoyed my day.

How to reach Indian Pueblo Cultural Center from different parts of Albuquerque ?    Lyft & Uber operates in Albuquerque city of New Mexico but the city also has pretty good bus service. I used Buses to commute between places in Albuquerque and took help from Google maps app. One bus ride costs you $1 and for $2 you get day pass & can use bus throughout the day without any max limit of rides. $2 day pass in Albuquerque city makes lot of sense.

What to expect at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center ?   The best thing I liked is the dance performance which happens only during weekends.

Apart from the dance performance, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center has various museum galleries. It's awesome to walk through each of them and enjoy audio-visual content. While checking out Indian Pueblo Cultural Center museum I realised there are lot of commonalities how old houses used to be built in India with mud, grass pieces and natural material. For New Mexico, the resources quality may vary but practices were almost the same. That encouraged me to read more and check out various audio/video presentations in Indian Pueblo Cultural Center museum.

This post takes you through some of the details about how to reach Albuquerque Old Town from different parts of the town and what all to do in Albuquerque Old Town, what not to miss & things to skip, along lot of travel tips to make your experience richer & pocket friendly.

Old Town is the historic original town site of Albuquerque in New Mexico State of USA. This old town was laid out by Spanish colonists in the 1700s and  it's preserved pretty well. Albuquerque Old Town has couple of historic adobe buildings surrounding Old Town Plaza. On the plaza's north side stands San Felipe de Neri Church, which is a Spanish colonial church with a very old architectural style. 

Old Town is a popular tourist destination with a large number of restaurants, shops, galleries, walking alleys, green surroundings and lot more. Albuquerque Old Town is also a home to the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. The New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science and the Explora science center are located at a walkable distance - one is close to one of the gates of Old Town and the other is across the road from there.

San Felipe de Neri Church is a historic Catholic church located in Old Town Plaza of Albuquerque, New Mexico. This Church is one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city and the only building in Old Town proven to date to the Spanish colonial period. When I learned that, it was very interesting fact for my brain to register and appreciate. The church is listed on the New Mexico State Register of Cultural Properties and certainly makes lot of sense.

Above photograph of San Felipe de Neri Church is clicked from across the road.  During the Victorian era, under the influence of Bishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy, the church was remodelled with Gothic Revival elements, including bell towers, a new pitched roof, and interior decorations, to give it a more European appearance. Over a period of time, the changes in this structure made it special and more appreciable as a piece of architecture in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Downtown is one of the most populated area in terms of graffiti arts across the town.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite

Some of the other main places to see Albuquerque Sunset are mentioned in various articles online but I found one thing weird in those lists. Most of them enlist hotels, restaurants or pubs. I can't believe that only commercial places are good to enjoy sunset in Albuquerque town. I have intentionally not mentioned places here and certainly want to alert that many of the lists online look like promotional posts for commercial buildings.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -   1. Manage your waste well and don’t litter, Use dustbins. 2. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.  3. Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.  4. Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.  5. Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite

Most of the Events, exhibitions and programs are presented in the areas of music, theatre, dance, visual arts, culinary arts, film, history, literary arts and cultural-significant customs, featuring local, national and international artists, scholars and entertainers. In addition to its own events, the NHCC also hosts hundreds of rental events each year - in its theatres, ballrooms and outside plaza.    Unfortunately when I visited National Hispanic Cultural Center, there was no event happening and I had to just head back within 15 minutes. And it's little away from Albuquerque Downtown, so it was little disappointing. I wish I had checked their website before planning a visit.

There is pretty good bus connectivity between New Mexico University and other parts of Albuquerque Town. I was in Downtown and there are multiple direct buses from Downtown to New Mexico University. The drop may be at different places within New Mexico University campus.
