To tell the truth I love all the cultural events at the state fair grounds in NM but I am going to expand my research to covering Gplus1 if I can manage getting paid from the first launchings of internet explorer. Thus I would be able to collaborate the proper tools and team equipment to cover more reviews in NM and possilbly other neighboring states.

Cristal D


We attended Heart of a Dragon, an original play by Coral Community Charter School. Wonderfully done.

In the past we have seen MTS, The Little Mermaid and Shrek here as well. We love the center, rows provide amply space for my tall family, bathrooms are easily accessible and the venue is accessible via public transportation so you can avoid the $5 parking fee if you'd like!

Ernest P


Great place to see some theater

Deblyn M


Great displays and the auditorium was wonderful for the show we saw there.

Kayla S


Slow moving. Impossible to find events.

Amanda R


Very nice facility to have an event!

Mateo P


Quite a nice space. It compliments EXPONM quite well. The acoustics were good for the event we went to and things seemed pretty well run.

Nickiel P


What a great place. Hidden but awesome. Annette is very helpful, the gentlemen at the front was kind of rude but overall a great place.

Roheel P


It's a cool place. There is history posted on the walls

Monica W


This is a great venue to host events at. The staff are so helpful and friendly. I attended the TEDxWomen event here and had a wonderful time!

Dave H


I didn't get to see the whole display of art. I was there for a conference and the art in my room was awesone. Highly encourage you take the time and visit.

Juanito G


One of the nicest performance halls in New Mexico that I have seen.

Felipe M


A beautiful place. Parking is near the building. Great access point as well.

Susan L


Great place to have a school performance or concert. Very nice facility.

Diane H


First of all, it's my work place. After that, it's the shows and events that we have here. And we are in a good location in the city.



NM State Parks truly appreciates the professionalism displayed by the staff of the AAPAC. It was a pleasure working with them recently during our annual awards ceremony! Very impressed with the venue and the staff!

Maria N


I learned a few things at the exhibit.

Michael M


A hidden gem. Great theater to see a show.



Very nice venue. Clean and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this place. Friendly staff.

Pat P


Very nice venue for a dance performance and as place for dance workshops and vending. Lots of parking.

Barry G


We visited this wonderful place to see "Mama Mia", which was a wonderful perormance.

alex m


Great venue... the sound system needs an update.

Mikki R


A great place to see a live performance . Not a bad seat in the house.

Todd H


Ok so we saw Mama Mia play here. Seriously impressive for a local production. We will be seeing more of these for sure. The facility was great. I was not aware this was even here. Going to another show next weekend



Horrific experience. We normally have a positive time here, but this time it was horrific. It was supposed to be a music program. The third song was a boy reading a THREE page rant about HIS political views. This was NOT the place for that. People were drunk and my wife and I, both Disabled Veterans, were trampled repeatedly by people getting up to dance...sitting back down and then getting up to dance again. We left the event after a short time. I doubt we will ever go there again it was such a terrible time.

Erick H


Place is very beautiful. Must see events happening year round don't wanna miss out.

Adventures w


A very nice theatre, it's not too big so you can get a good seat almost anywhere. The performances here are good, we watched Honk and enjoyed it! There is an exhibit area with interesting art work highlight in African culture and the impact of important African American people. I recommend visiting this place! It's modern and well kept, clean.

Martin S


The Veterans Memorial Park, great place to have a fund raising for, National Veterans Golden Age Games.

Cassandra G


Very clean, and professional! Beautiful building! Seen my son perform here personally twice, and the each time the sound, and lighting were perfect. The seats are comfortable, and the environment is is much rather enjoyable like your in your very own living area with friends. Vibes are amazing!

Jerry P


Great venue for a concert....comfortable, clean, intimate and looks like all seats are good seats. Access to the center is easy, parking abundant

Barry L


The African American venue is very inviting for groups that need a special place to have their plays and dances on a stage that is well lighted and the audience has no troubles hearing the actor's voices.

Frank F


Amazing venue, museum, and the staff is so amazingly hospitable, professional, and friendly. They see a lot of events through the year, but never forget a face.

Monica G


They host some of the best events! Super nice people and always welcoming families and children! Love it!

Geri A


What a beautiful venue we have in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I attended a dance performance there and it was just wonderful there!!!

Lin A


Nice, clean and friendly venue. Parking and seating was good too. Seen Eric Darius in concert he was amazing !

Paul R


Was here for a mothers against drunk driving panel, it was aiiight. They were mad about drunk drivers but super cool about drunks who stay in their living room. I was out right on time! 5 stars, if not for the fact some native drunk chick sat next to me and made the air unbreathable, i thought you kicked these people out? 3 stars.

Wes S


Wonderful facility with several rooms for art displays, classrooms, and a beautiful theater for films or live performances.

steve d


Great performance and very friendly staff and host. Beautiful facility.

Clay S


Nice venue, but they don't allow any outside food or drink, so pray that you don't have a long training...

Robert B


The musical elf was one of the greatest musicals I have ever seen

Brother F


Great place for showcasing events, educational, art, entertainment and even political insight and health information



This is a beautiful performing arts theater. Small in size, so all seats are fairly close to the stage. Lots of good parking, you do enter through the south Expo NM gate, but for our event the parking ticket booths were closed (free parking for AAPAC)

DharmaLynne F


Clean, temperature pleasant, staff helpful and well informed. Great acoustics!

Nick Z


Fun place but has a strange policy about their theater

Drew E


Great place for live performances! But, lousy projection system for seeing a movie. I hope they upgrade soon.

Elizabeth H


Went for a school play. It was really nice. Very beautiful inside.

blake h


What a great experience and what a great performance I was very impressed and had a wonderful time easy to get to EZ Park

Hannah J


Albuquerque peace event there. Great facility

L. M


Nice stage. They hosted our end of school performance.

EmpressDivine T


Amazing space for a performance. Clean and well kept venue with friendly atmosphere. My husband and I went on the 13th for his birthday and saw a wonderfully blessed reggae artist/Proteje. would love to attend many more performances at this venue... and would absolutely recommend!!!!

She's T


Amazing and full of variety. Want to watch a play? Or walk through a gallery? Even burlesque if that's what you're into. You can find a plethora of things here. You can educate yourself culturally or even sign your kids up for a summer program. Just about everything under the sun.

Hasani O


Black history is taught here. Wonderful concerts are held here. Live theatre shows are performed here. Black art shows are very family friendly.

Wyatt W


What a great talk by Sherri Burr and her new book Complicated Lives. There is an amazing exhibit here until October you should come see.

Strainetta J


Attendant the Michael Henson gateway show.. Very well done

I'm looking forward to the next show

Michael G


I was there for my daughter's ballet performance. I have been there for several. Nice building, very friendly helpful staff. Pleasant auditorium, simple nice stage.

Tony M.



This is a great venue for performances. While it is not the largest venue in town it is comfortable and well taken care of. Parking is easy to get in and this and 0 more
