The exhibit is not in the Burger King but next door between the hotel and restaurant. Excellent display about WW2, the Code Talkers and local history. The artifacts were displayed well and the young lady also offered interesting information about the area. We were staying at the Wetherill Inn which was the site of the first white home and trading... More

A small exhibit with interesting artifacts and history of these brave men. Small but worth the stop.

Really sad if this is the largest exhibit of code talkers in the USA. Well, it's a wall in a Burger King.

Attended presentation from one of the original Navaho Code Talkers. Very interesting and then went to the exhibit. The exhibit was fabulous.

The Navajo soldiers helped the USA during WW 2 in many Pacific Island battles by scouting the enemy and transmitting important intelligence.

This was probably one of the most surprising experiences during our cross-country drive, and I am still rather baffled by it - that a Burger King hamburger joint houses such and interesting museum exhibit, created as a tribute, and not with commercial interest. It is very well worth a visit. As the exhibits are housed inside the Burger King restaurant,... More

In reading about the exhibit, the owner of the burger kings's Father served as a Navajo code talker. The exhibit is well done with authentic memorabilia. It is a permanent exhibit in the burger king. We spent about 15 minutes looking through the many items.

There are a couple of panels of a display that are interesting in the Burger King and there are some displays outside like a male and female hogan that are interesting. Best of all - it's free!

It's located in a nice big Burger King with a playground to boot. Definitely has some interesting artifacts about the Windtalkers as well as what seems to be memorabilia that was taken back from Japan by the soldiers. Small exhibit with 4 glass cabinets but it's free and very convenient to visit.

nice lay out of stories and display of the Navajo code talkers and their families. Sad they were not recognized at the time of their service, brave men
