  • The Kimo Theatre, a Pueblo-Deco picture palace, opened in 1927, the year the first “talkie” opened to moviegoers across the country. The Kimo has hosted such stars as Sally Rand, Gloria Swanson, Tom Mix and Ginger Rogers.
  • One of the nation’s finest anthropology museums, the Maxwell Museum offers exhibits and programs relating to cultures around the world, but is world-renowned for its collections from the Southwest.
  • The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, gateway to the 19 pueblos of New Mexico, provides the only chance to see authentic Native American dancing and art demonstrations year-round.
  • For almost three centuries Old Town has been the crossroads of the Southwest. It is still home to many families whose ancestors founded the town.
  • Petroglyph National Monument is the location of an estimated 20,000 carved images. Many of the American Indian petroglyph images were etched 300 to 700 years ago.
  • Route 66 went through here. Enjoy tracing it through the present sights.
