Beautiful museum that covers the history of the Navajo Nation, just around the corner from Window Rock, a naturally formed opening on the sandstone rock. The Window Rock park contains a monument to commemorate the Navajo Code Talkers that contributed to the success of several campaigns during WWII. The town of Window Rock holds a daily flea market where you... More

The Long Walk exhibit was very informative, it complements the excellent exhibit at the Dine' College in Tsaile, Navajo Nation. It is wonderful to see the Indigenous Peoples telling their story from their perspectives rather than about them from non-Native Peoples. Congratulations to the Navajo Nation for this Navajo Nation Museum, we look forward to seeing more outstanding exhibits. Three... More

We enjoyed a visit to this museum. It gave my daughter the chance to learn about the Long Walk, the Navajo Code Talkers, the way of life of the Dine, and see examples of the crafts of the Navajo.

My wife and I chose to visit here on our vacation to the Navajo Nation this year. It was worth the visit, but we felt they could do a bit more. PROS: It is easy to find and has plenty of parking. The people we met were friendly and helped us as we did not know where to start our... More

Art and photos mainly, but the accompanying descriptions tell a lot about Navajo life. The volunteers at the museum are very willing to talk about their culture also.

This free museum offered introductions to Navajo history and culture, a rich array of traditional artifacts, and historical and contemporary photographs. The architecture references traditional Navajo design. There's also a traditional hogan (a house and ceremonial site) outside. A terrific starting point for a visit.

The Window Rock itself was geographically awesome. I also enjoyed the sculpture of the wind talker. the veteran wall of service was enjoyed. driving outside of Window Rock the veterans Cemetery was covered with multiple United States flags. This was touching and a good Memorial to the service of the Navajo warriors for the United States

I didn't get much time to see the museum as we were travelling back to Gilbert from Albuquerque and it was suggested that I might like to have a short visit to Window Rock. Window Rock is about a half hour journey from the 40 (hwy 66) and about 1 mile beyond the museum. The site is especially poignant as... More

I have seldom encountered people who sincerely showed warmth and respect. Before we (my two companions and I) entered the building, a lovely lady, author Roberta John, stopped and asked if there was anything she could do for us. She made us feel welcome to the museum and to the Navajo Nation. The museum was educational and easy to understand.... More
