A self guided tour of some interesting displays of art and Gallup. Sand painting and kachina carving are show. Art from competitions is also displayed. Cute cafe in the same building. Nice bathrooms. Still a waiting room for trains.

The building is hosting art, by local school children and adults. Am looking forward to receiving purchase of Monument Valley By 8th grader Anthony APachito.. (Sorry if I spelt that wrong) Bless your talent , you will do very well. We saw artifacts, fascinating understanding of life for the Native Americans and their ways of living and thriving in New...

We started our visit with a cup of Chai and friendly conversation in Angela's Cafe, which is located on the first floor. History is so important and this is the opportunity to learn a little more about Navajo Code Talkers. The museum is on the 2nd floor. Take the time and go upstairs. Walk around and enjoy the displays and... More

We stopped here for the first time and had some awesome carrot cake, espresso, and tea and the little cafe inside. The ladies were so friendly, and there are funny signs all around to read. Upstairs are some cultural and art exhibits to look at. No entry fee. Note that this is also the Amtrak station for Gallup, and there... More

The second floor museum was full of traditional items made by native craftsmen from bygone years and paintings also. The sand painting on the floor was fabulous. There is also a display dedicated to the Navajo Code Talkers who served during World War Two. Without these men the war could have turned out quite differently.

I love the variety of tribes you can visit. The Navajo (Dine') are great friends, as well as Acoma, Zuni, Laguna, Apache, and others. There is much to learn about living and values that are being embraced by environmentalist that have been a way of life here forever. Give the Native Americans credit! They told us not to destroy the... More

Enjoyed the artwork of local students from various schools throughout New Mexico...the storyteller museum was excellent. Great photographs of artists from past years on display as well as weavings, sand painting artwork and pottery. Angela's cafe has delicious soup and sandwiches....thank you friendly Gallupians!
