Gallup Cultural Center

The Gallup Cultural was created in 1996 at the newly renovated Santa Fe Depot by the Southwest Indian Foundation. The concept for the Cultural Center is modeled on the Public Square, where the community, school children and visitors can gather together for forums, lectures and to celebrate the extraordinarily diverse heritages of our region.

The exhibits at the museum of the Gallup Cultural Center (located on the 2nd floor of the building- the Storytellers Museum)  showcase the museum’s traditional approach to the interpretation of Native American Arts & Culture. Developed through active partnership between Native and non-Native people, the museum's exhibits convey the message that Indian cultures are complex diverse, steeped in Tradition and very much alive. There are also unique train models for the public that give a sense of Gallup's rich train history.

We wish to invite you to this wonderful historic building to enjoy the many exhibits.  Trains, weaving, sand painting, Historic Route 66, silversmithing and more come to life in the Storyteller Museum with in-depth interviews with experts in that specific field.
