  • The museum is just the right size for an afternoon's visit without feeling rushed or overwhelmed. Well curated with excellent information at nearly every exhibit.

  • Beautiful museum with really interesting exhibits and videos. Videos include fun vignettes about Navajo life and how they made things like turkey feather blankets and arrowheads. One of the best museums I've been to.
  • One of the best ways to spend a morning and 12 dollars! Extensive collection of a wide array of featured cultures with very insightful history behind each. Definitely worth a visit and a walk around the grounds if you're in the area (don't forget to check out the downstairs Treasure Chest too!).
