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

The code talkers museum starts in the Burger King then moves outside to the shade house. Worth the stop to catch up on a very important part of our history.

This museum deserved to have its own building and extension, but instead it is incorporated into a fast-food restaurant. BOOO!

A good, if small, exhibit dedicated to the Navajo who contributed to the Allied war effort. Worth a stroll there if you are staying in Kayenta.

This was a very interesting exhibit in the museum. However I found it larger than the overall exhibit, there is more to the Navajo's than the code talkers, let's not outshine the overall history

I learned so much about the code talkers and their major contribution to WWII. There was also very good history of the Navajo people.

We stopped in at the Monument Valley visitors center, where we highly enjoyed this exhibit. It had been planned with great thought and carried out very professionally. We had heard about the code talkers, and here we learned much more detail about them. It is well worth stopping by for.
