Worth it!

Loved the exhibit and the layout of the museum and property. There was a visiting exhibit about Alcatraz Island that was a pleasant surprise.

I expected more about the historical culture of local tribes. I got Alcatraz (with no explanation of the connection between local tribes and Alcatraz). I got other stuff. Not so much culture. In retrospect I'd pass.

An informative journey told through the Native perspective. The exhibits are well done and staff will answer questions (just don't be shy).

Walked through cultural center and paid for the tour. Artifacts were impeccable and spectacular. There was a lot of media to view and a lot to read on. I learned so much in such a short time.

Great museum to learn more about the American Indian culture in the region and its history. there was a section about Alcatraz - which was pretty lame, but I was reminded about the Indian protest there during the 60's. If you are in the Pendleton area, take some time to visit this museum.

An incredible documentation of Indian history and the Westward route of discovery. I left the exhibit more informed and more culturally sensitive as the history here is not something anyone would learn in a classroom. This a 'Don't Miss!'

A beautiful, modern museum almost hidden by the casino. A first class exhibition space with first class exhibits. Do not miss.

Learn local native american history and traditions. The local natives go back to helping Lewis and Clark in 1805.
