Not the greatest zoo, but represents local , indigenous animals. Free admission, although donations probably go a long way.
We enjoyed the paintings and learning about the history of the Navajo people, some of which we were familiar with and some we were not. Our visit was on a Monday morning, so there was not much going on. The hogan outside was locked, so no chance to look inside.
This museum is adjacent to the Quality Inn, so we walked over and spent a couple hours here one day. Admission is free, but we gave generously to their donations jar.

The small museum in this attractive community center exhibits interesting materials and information about the Navajo culture. The gift shop is primarily a book store with a few beautiful but very expensive craft items.

There is a restroom and a library with internet (only available to those with a library card which is only obtainable with local postmark and I.D. Card). Right next to zoo (free entrance).

We were on the road from Gallup to Chinle and saw this from the road. We stopped on a whim. While I am not sure I'd drive a long way just to see this, we were favorably impressed with our overall experience. We ended up buying a book in the excellent shop, and we learned a lot about Navajo history.... More
