confusing but nice

It is very nice but it can get a little confusing if you do not know where you are going or what you are looking for. Many wonderful things to look at..

I visited the museum on 5/18/15 for the first time. I was totally impressed with the beauty of the facility and the wonderful exhibits. My main purpose for visiting was to view the Civil War photographs, and I was not disappointed; though not terribly large, the space was well-used, easy to navigate, and provided just enough info about each photo....

I wanted to take the wood walls and floors home with me. I ended up just buying logo hand made coffee cups in the museum store. It was also fascinating to watch younger people on the hands on exhibits on the second floor. You need at least an hour to do justice to the displays and paintings.

Not a huge museum, but worth visiting if you are in the area. Western & Native American art. Not far from glass museum, and you can get a combo ticket for the 2 museums.

This is one of the finest Native American museums I ever visited. My wife who is part Native American was blown away by the exhibits. This is must see attraction.

I liked the hands on room for children. I am not a fan of Western Art and Pottery. The architecture of the museum is awesome.

We enjoyed the artwork from the American West. The restored building adds interest. Parking is easy across the street.
