I was disappointed with the display. Mainly, woven pots, spear heads and photos of the native people. I was hoping to see more daily life-style of the natives.

This is a small museum that is close to the visitor center. It has some excellent examples of indian baskets and clothing, but best of all was the docent who explained some of the native indian items and the historical significance.

We visited the gallery on a rainy day in the valley when we didn't want to hike. Loved the Indian Motorcycle. Special exhibit by local artists was lovely.
