It is small but nice. The collection of cradle boards, beading work, clay work and woven baskets is very nice. It seems more like a gallery than an museum since there is not much labeling. Beautiful work. Authentic music in the background. Free.

It's been awhile since I've been to this museum, so I'm sure it's improved with additional exhibits during that time. It's focus is on the interesting local tribal history & should be an added attraction for all Parker, Arizona area visitors. Information contained herein provides an understanding of those tribes residing in the Colorado River area. The museum is only... More

My son took us to go enjoy day a 2nd Thanksgiving meal with his in laws. I must say driving through the desert did not prepare me for what was to come. The beautiful red mountains, the serene skies, the river flowing. This is a true hidden jewel and now understand why the locals keep it to themselves. You will... More

Beautiful beadwork! Great collection of baskets and jars! Fairly small so it is doable in an hour or less. The price is right! Nice shop if you would like.

The museum focuses on the four tribes that make up the Colorado River Indian Tribes. They are the Mohave, Hopi, Navajo and... More
