The collection is amazing and tells the story of the Native American tribes with accuracy and respect. Be sure to take plenty of time and don't rush.

We visited at a time when the museum was not crowded, so that left us a lot of time to hang around the exhibits. My favorite was the Goldwater kachina doll exhibit. So many examples. We also liked the way the various tribes - Zuni,...More

We visited on free first Friday and it was not very crowded. There are 2 floors and a courtyard with a variety of sculptures. I learned a lot about Native American art, culture and history.

Impressive collection of some older artifacts with more recent Native American art. This museum tells the stories of the artists as well as displaying their work. Docents are knowledgeable. The tour (included with admission) was helpful to put the art into perspective.

Went to see the festival, numerous children enjoying arts and crafts, but the high school Mariachi band was fantastic. The museum art was good, probably fantastic if your have an appreciation for Indian art. The exhibit about Indian boarding schools was well done and informative.
