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.

Pictures from the past and History are nice. Located near the entrance, it only takes a few minutes to visit.

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.

They were supposed to be open. They weren't. No one in sight to ask. Back in Yuma, we asked around and were finally told the place was never open. Don't waste your gas trying to find the place. Maybe it's closed because the place is literally falling down?
