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

Awesome to see the other side of the history classes and how respectfully the natives treated the white and what they got back from them. Really enjoyed it!

The Navajo Nation Gov put money into this initially but seem to have dropped the ball lately. I remember this being much more impressive when it was first built. There are several exhibits with misspelled words which is particularly disheartening when you are reading about the experiences during the Long Walk. You would think that someone would have enough respect... More

If you want to see some cool artifacts and exhibits of Navajo history, you should stop by here. It's a nice building with interesting artifacts. It's small - you could run through it or spend an hour there. It depends on your interest level.

This is a really nice building with some basic permanent displays. We have been there when there were special displays of rugs in different traditions...it was great! So...it is kind of a hit or miss experience depending on what the special display is, at the time. The bookstore/gift shop is wonderful. Do not miss the actual "Window Rock" which is... More

I made it a point to visit the museum on my recent trip to the area. I knew that I was going to come away from it with a greater appreciation for the Dine. I am glad that I made the stop. Growing up in Utah and even building a house on the Navajo reservation during college didn't teach me... More
