The museum has changing displays. The one we saw this visit was by native artists, and showed both contemporary and historic works. Labeling was good on the various works. It is a small museum, but worth the visit when in the area.

The highlight of our trip to the museum was going at the same time two busloads of children were onsite. It was so good to see their teachers directing them to specific museum pieces which matched their course of study. Even better was the children's eager response.The Tribal history was interspersed with art and artifacts. The story and exhibit of... More

A friendly, welcoming museum with an excellent mix of art and history. I was warmly greeted by the man at the front desk and had the pleasure of meeting the curator, Clarenda Begay, who invited me to observe a weaving class that was underway. I also enjoyed the small display about the position of Miss Navajo Nation and how different... More

This is a very impressive museum with multiple galleries, a beautiful central atrium and excellent displays. I would love to see them evolve some of their exhibits with a little more background for those of us who visit and aren't 'in the know' already. For example, there was memorabilia from a Navajo Code talker, and a tribute to the Code... More

Well done. Five sections include a very nice collection of Navajo artists' work, information about the WWII Code Talkers, artefacts of the Navajo Nation, and the moving story of the relocation of the Navajo, their costly but stubborn resistance to the new land, and their successful return to their homeland. There is also a good 20 minute movie showing on... More

We had our Gathering of Healers event at the museum for two days. It's a wonderful place with a nice auditorium and art presentation area and a great outside area where we had a drum circle... There are beautiful sheer cliffs surrounding the site.... just beautiful!

This museum provides information on the Navajo Indian's Trail of Tears. It houses samples of Native American artifacts, clothing and crafts. The museum currently has an exhibit of art pieces on the theme "if I could speak," It was a very enjoyable exhibit and a nice museum to spend time in.
