This Pueblo has done a very nice job of telling a story. I would have liked more artifacts and info re the Jemez. There was a lot about church, religion and school, but otherwise, very well done.

Hi Sabrina I don't have an answer to the time and days the bread is sold... For the most accurate information, you should call the center directly . Ask them for the "bread" day/time availability. It is delicious👍
