Located next to the casino outside of Pendleton, this is a treasure trove of information about the tribes of the surrounding area. The history of the people, the land, and the resources is told and displayed incredibly well. No pictures, cafeteria on site.

A beautiful drive out to the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute! Met by knowledgeable staff for questions and detailed authentic history displays. All ages would enjoy the legend movie with "glowing fire"! Excellent gift store full of books and beautiful art pieces. Tons of parking!
