National Hispanic Cultural Center Review

A showpiece for the city, and a showcase for Hispanic culture in Albuquerque's historic Barelas neighborhood, this beautifully designed space contains a museum and art galleries, multiple performance venues, a restaurant, a 10,000-volume genealogical research center and library, and an education center. Its stunning and acoustically superb Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts and smaller Albuquerque Journal Theatre host ballet, flamenco dancing, bilingual theater, traditional Spanish and New Mexican music, the famous world music festival ¡Globalquerque!, and many other performances. Exhibits at its first-rate museum include dynamic displays of photography, paintings, sculpture, and traditional and contemporary craftwork by local artists as well as by internationally known names. There's a vintage WPA-era school that now contains the research library and La Fonda del Bosque restaurant ($$, no dinner), which serves tasty New Mexican fare indoors and out on the patio.
