The museum isn't that big, but it does a decent job telling about Indian history and culture. It's bright and modern. The Navajo code talker section was more focused, but as interesting as you can make it. This museum should be good for kids. The attached trading post has a big selection.

A good introduction to the history and way of life of the Navajo Nation. Allow a good hour to visit and view some of the short videos, and maybe another 15-20 minutes for the trading post next door (which has a big variety of crafts, jewellery and souvenirs). The museum gives a good view of the past and present with... More

I visited this museum while volunteering in Tuba City Arizona with a group of high school students. They enjoyed it and said it gave them a good understanding of the area. My 2 year old enjoyed it because it was interactive and hands on. She could bang drums, touch stuffed goats, and a small water fall outside.

Very inexpensive, but a little on the boring side they should have had more ancient exhibits! With such a long history they should have gone back in time a bit more - not what we were expecting.

We made the mistake of arriving with only 45 minutes to spend in the museum. It was well thought out and highly informative. It was divided into sections with a video introduction to each. All aspects of tribal life were included and although we had some knowledge about the Dine we left having learned so much more. There was also... More

An excellent small museum about the history & culture of the Navajo. I was ashamed that I knew so little about the Navajo & their treatment, & the fact that they are so patriotic. The Code Talker exhibit was very good & complemented the exhibit in Gallop New Mexico. Everyone of all ages will enjoy & learn something.

A well done small, not-boring museum offering great insight into the Navajo culture. A perfect stop everyone wanting to learn to learn something about the expansive Nation through which they are traveling. Admission is only a few dollars, and the introductory movie is great. Highly recommended.
