I really enjoyed my tour; I think it's a very good value. The host is extremely knowledgeable and not overbearing. I liked being shown around first and then being allowed to wander and read through the info on my own. I don't have that strong of an interest in turquoise, yet I still felt that the info as presented was edifying, enlightening, and worthwhile, as well as germane. I was visiting ABQ from out of state and feel that I learned pertinent info in a unique way. Thank you!

Owner Was an Arrogant Jerk. Was looking at a Super high dollar necklace for my wife. A friend told me they had some stuff. The Tall guy. Owner or whatever didn’t take me seriously and Said how much my home State (Ohio) Sucked. At least I’m not a Dork running a Turquoise Museum 😂. Avoid this hole in the wall.

We enjoyed this little gem. The family is very friendly and they obviously know their turquoise. Don't judge a book by it's cover because this place is much more than skin deep .
