FEATURES
The New Mexico Pavilion is a pueblo of five adobe buildings clustered around a central plaza laid out in the form of the Zia Sun Symbol, the state symbol. This pueblo is part of the state's Mexican and Indian heritage.
 
One of the buildings houses a trading post which offers Indian pottery, blankets and other products for sale. The industrial development of the state is displayed in two other buildings by means of photographs, models and products. These displays include the oil and natural gas industries, uranium mining and space research. The tourist center supplies travel information and shows color slides of state scenes. The largest building house the Long Branch Saloon and Hitching Post Restaurant featuring foods of the southwestern United States and Mexico. The menu includes tamales, enchiladas, tacos and barbecued dishes of all kinds.
 
American Indians perform ceremonial dances in the central plaza.
