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.

Everyone needs to mark this Gallup Cultural Center as a stop in Gallup. There is so much to enhance your knowledge of the area and people.

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!

Located in the Amtrak train station, up the stairs across from the cafe, the museum occupies a small area. Only open Mon.-Fri., too bad for tourists in Gallup for the weekend. They need longer hours, more publicity and more space, because what is there is very special and desperately needed. They champion the artistic skills and development of this and... More
