The trials and trails of native americans brought to life in this museum. The main exhibits do seem a little dated, but the art is fabulous! As an added bonus there was a major exhibit of Ansell Adams's work....absolutely stunning photography. Highly recommended!

If you have an interest in the material culture of Native Americans then this is the place for you. The cafe however could do with a little more attention

I loved that there was an entire floor for kids to have interactive play. It allowed me to see the exhibits while he played. Fantastic photos of Ansel Adams. The restaurant had a good selection and it was nice to be able to sit outdoors.

On July 5th, we visited this museum and enjoyed a great visit. My wife and I really liked the Ansel Adams exhibit, as well as the rest of the museum. I will highly recommend this exhibit to anyone who has even the slightest interest in Ansel Adams. My children enjoyed sitting in the downstairs stagecoach exhibit.

The best Ansel Adams show I have ever seen. Get there before it ends. Otherwise it is like The Field Museum for kids, lots of head dress and teepees very well done. It is the special show that make it for me.
