I was actually looking for a museum with Amil Pedro's work. They did not have it here, but the basket weaving and pottery exhibits were outstanding. I also loved the military exhibit. The 365 was interesting to see modern life on the reservation. Excellent job.

If you are looking for something to do while at Wild Horse Pass area, check out this little museum. They have some great works of art and history of this native community. They have special events too.

We had no idea about the opening hours so I guess we got lucky. Interesting buildings to look at, if a little confusing - it wasn't too clear where to find the reception (it's the building on the left when you get through the tunnel)...More

A wonderful center. It is only open three days per week. Be sure to watch the entire film about the history of these American Indians. They are truly amazing.

Beautiful building built by the Federal gov't that has virtually no visitors. Not much to see except photos of tribe from years past.
