Acoma Pueblo is built atop a sheer walled 367 foot sandstone bluff.  Since 1150 AD it is believed to be the oldest continuously inhabited community in North America.  Acomo Pueblo offers a window in time to see the customary traditionals of their ancestors through Native American pottery making and tribal celebrations.

There are about 300 two and three-story adobe buildings on the mesa with exterior ladders to access the upper stories where residents live.  Potters sell their wares of highly sought after polychrome pottery.  

The isolation of the Pueblo has stalled the hands of time for more than 1,200 years.  With the help of a native guide, you’ll visit the massive San Estevan del Rey Mission which dates from1640.  Both the Mission and the Pueblo are Registered National Historical Landmarks are on the National Register of Historic Places.  

Next you’ll see the Cultural and your final step will be Haak’u Museum.  Their exhibits will take you on a historic journey of Acoma Pueblo. Stunning scenery will give you an abundance of great photo ops.
