This museum is very interesting and worth the stop. Kind of sad but full of history and respect to the Navajo Code Talkers. Not many left.

Well, this wasn't really a museum that I would travel across states to get to, but when passing through Kayenta anyway, sure! Being able to combine it with getting ice cream for the kids doesn't make it worse either. The exhibit is quite interesting.

Inside the Burger King this cultural display is a real gem. Even if you are not into fast food it is worth stopping and seeing this exhibit.

Clear and concise exhibition of the Code Talkers shown in photos, newspaper clippings and official records. Would have loved an auditory component of the exhibition.

We were driving through Kayenta on the way to Monument Valley. Stopped at Burger King for a bite to eat and encountered this wonderful exhibit inside the restaurant, out in the middle of the Arizona desert!!! Great artifacts and even greater story!! Highly recommended!!!

This is a very informative and interesting exhibit. The whole family enjoyed it. The added bonus of a sundae from Burger King made the yonger part of the family even more enthusiastic over the stop.

I can't find the hours posted online, and the museum doesn't seem to have a website -- the small display case at the Burger King next door is probably available from early morning to late evening, like the restaurant hours... More
