The Appaloosa Museum is located on the Moscow-Pullman highway just on the west edge of Moscow proper. Ostensibly dedicated to the history of the Appaloosa horse, the museum touches upon several aspects of the breed including its long association with the Indians and horse shows. The horses are not always on site - call in advance if you wish to... More

This museum is free but a donation is requested. The museum is very small but has a wonderful history of the Native Americans. I've visited many native American museums but this one seemed kind of special. There is a map that shows how the Native Americans were hunted down and how the Appaloosa Horse almost became extinct because of a... More

This small museum is dedicated fleetingly to the horse and massively to the culture around the horse. It’s focus is on the legacy of the horse as it parallels that of the Nez Perce and later ranchers and horse aficionados. Make sure to watch the movie, then spend time reading, reading, reading. The items on display represent a lifestyle best... More

Everyone must visit the Appaloosa Museum and Heritage Center. The Appaloosa horse is so incredible, and it is so fantastic that the headquarters is still in Moscow, ID.

A small museum dedicated to the Appaloosa (warrior) horse, breed and perfected by the Nez Perce native Americans. Good history telling and also local history of the club members.

This place was very neat, we stopped in here while we waiting to get keys to our daughters apartment. The history of this region is so rich and beautiful. The staff here was great and very informative about the region. Loved every minute of it
