The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, operated by Native Americans, is a stunning museum and crafts market, great if you fancy purchasing some souvenirs for your trip.

Videos are also played throughout the museum to exhibit modern Pueblo life.  Upstairs you will find incredible jewellery and pottery as well as a café serving a range of Pueblo specialties.

The intact Spanish plaza is a highlight for visitors. Dating from 1706, the area consists of a four-block historical and architectural museum with the most famous building, San Felipe de Neri Church, on the plaza's northern side. Though the church has been renovated several times since first built in 1706, the old charm and historical sense remain.

Other important attractions are the Albuquerque Museum of Art, History and Science, and the New Mexico Museum of Natural History; while the excellent Kimo Theater features stunning Pueblo Deco architecture as well as tasteful displays of art.

What most people want to know

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
