This free museum is in the Shade House with displays of historic Navajo life, plus information on the famous Navajo code talkers of World War II. It's set between a Hampton Inn and a Burger King on Hwy 160; some displays are inside the BK as well. Well worth a short stop.

This museum is very interesting and worth the stop. Kind of sad but full of history and respect to the Navajo Code Talkers. Not many left.

Well, this wasn't really a museum that I would travel across states to get to, but when passing through Kayenta anyway, sure! Being able to combine it with getting ice cream for the kids doesn't make it worse either. The exhibit is quite interesting.

Inside the Burger King this cultural display is a real gem. Even if you are not into fast food it is worth stopping and seeing this exhibit.

Clear and concise exhibition of the Code Talkers shown in photos, newspaper clippings and official records. Would have loved an auditory component of the exhibition.

We were driving through Kayenta on the way to Monument Valley. Stopped at Burger King for a bite to eat and encountered this wonderful exhibit inside the restaurant, out in the middle of the Arizona desert!!! Great artifacts and even greater story!! Highly recommended!!!

This is a very informative and interesting exhibit. The whole family enjoyed it. The added bonus of a sundae from Burger King made the yonger part of the family even more enthusiastic over the stop.
