Small Museum

The items displayed were nice and interesting but there were not many of them. The museum is in their casino.

Perfect for what I was looking for... Taking a bit of Yuma culture home for my daughter! Only took cash though so I had to hit the ATM at the casino...

Very difficult to find, then it turns out it is just an Indian store in a trailer, not really a museum.

We just walked by and stopped to look into it. Interesting pictures and artifacts of the Indian's life and historical communities

We asked at the Casino and were directed to up near the hospital. Asked at the Tribal offices and they said the museum was closed for repairs but the gift shop was open. Went to the gift shop and there were two ladies there. They said it had been closed for seven years and they didn't expect it to reopen... More

Nice display with interesting pictures. Not a whole lot to see, so you probably won't want to go much out of your way to visit unless you are neck deep in researching the Indian nations of the area. Located in the casino.

The old museum was closed down due to structural damage to the building, but they opened the Quechan Indian Tribe Cultural Center at the Quechan Casino Resort off Interstate 8, exit 166, California. It's really very nice and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there. I would recommend for anybody to stop in. Nicely done, informative and it's free!

Security Officers were disrespectful and rude to my party and I. I've never been treated like that. I am extremely disappointed that Quechan police allowed their security officers to act in such a way. Never again will I take my business there.

Some amazing items in this small museum. Take the old one way bridge across the Colorado River and go straight ahead to the white buildings on the left. Very worthwhile -- and free.
