National Hispanic Cultural Center
Creating cross-cultural appreciation and understanding of Hispanic culture
Located in Albuquerque’s historic and culturally vibrant Barelas neighborhood along the banks of the Rio Grande, the National Hispanic Cultural Center showcases Latino art and culture from throughout the world.
The center is home to the Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts, a dynamic art museum, research library, genealogy center, and restaurant. As a major player in Albuquerque’s cultural scene, the center presents art, history, and literary exhibitions, theater, music and dance productions, classic and contemporary films, and family and school events, along with readings and book signings by renowned authors and poets. In addition, the public can take Spanish language classes offered at all levels through the prestigious Cervantes Institute.
Popular annual events at the center include Día de los Muertos, the Latin Diva Concert Series, Women & Creativity, Festival Flamenco Internacional, Globalquerque, the Latin Dance Festival, and Jugamos Juntos (programming for youth).
