 Hispanic Cultural Center

The mission of the National Hispanic Cultural Center (NHCC) is to create a greater cross-cultural appreciation and understanding of Hispanic culture by preserving and promoting historic and contemporary Hispanic arts, humanities and achievements over the past 400 years.

The NHCC, situated on the banks of the Rio Grande River in the historic Albuquerque neighborhood of Barelas, is home the Intel Center for Technology & Visual Arts, a library and genealogy center, a computer learning center, a restaurant, a gift shop and the newly completed Roy E. Disney Center for Performing Arts comprising three state-of-the-art performance venues. Two institutions from Spain are also housed at the NHCC, the Cervantes Institute and Spanish Resource Center.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center offers a wide variety of cultural programming throughout the year including traditional and contemporary art exhibitions, national writing conferences, music, dance and theatrical productions as well as outreach opportunities via elementary, high schools and colleges. Education is central to every program at the NHCC and provides unique learning opportunities for all of its patrons.
