This exhibit is within a Kayenta, AZ Burger King and centrally located for visiting wondrous sights and great western history in every direction. Owner and operator, Richard Mike, son of King Mike, a WWII Code Talker, has not only put together a wonderful display of his dad's WWII mementos but has compiled important history facts along with videos which can...

While there have been books and movies about the Navajo code-talkers, this exhibit tells far more about the story of these invaluable contributors to the US Marines in the Pacific War than anything else we've seen. The truth of the story doesn't need to be fictionalized (as Hollywood did). There's so much more to the tale that this exhibit tells... More

I'm not a history buff, but I had read such glowing reviews of this exhibit that I decided to check it out. It's very interesting and informative! The information and artifacts are presented in a way that is very easy to understand. I learned so much about how the Navajo people helped the U.S. to be victorious in WWII! I... More

The Navajo Code Talkers exhibit at the Burger King was very well done, such a surprising find for a fast food place. They also had Wi-Fi and comfortable seating, plus a play area. A great place for a family stop or to get a fast food fix after time traveling in the canyons. It is like another world out there... More

I'm not sure why TripAdvisor rejected my request to correct the spelling in the name of this attraction. "Navajo" is spelled with a "j" not an "h". This museum-quality exhibit is well done. There are additional posters and photos of the code talkers in this Burger King, plus an educational video. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area... More

Signs along the highway advertise the Code Talkers exhibit - in a Burger King restaurant. Strange place to have it, but as we were getting ready to leave Kayenta, we stopped and took time to view the displays and story boxes. Love reading about one of the mothers receiving a box of Japanese flags.. and the story that she tells.... More

My son loved the movie WindTalkers, so he would've loved this. They had real equipment and pictures of the real guys. I took pictures while the locals gave me funny looks.

Great slice of WWII history nestled in a Burger King?? Oh well, it is a small exhibit, but has some really decent historical significance and artifacts. I'm just confused as to why this is not in a museum or some place more appropriate. This display deserves more respect. Also, it's "Navajo", not "Navaho" as noted in the title.

We were surprised to find this high quality exhibit in Burger King -- unusual, but this exposes the Code Talker history to lots of people that would not take the time to stop at a museum (like us:). Being a small and targeted exhibit, people can learn about an amazing slice of history without investing much time. Important, interesting, moving... More
