I stumbled on this and it proved to be a great find. The museum is fairly compact and laid out in a way that is easy to navigate. The young lady, Alyissa, working there was a great help. The museum focuses on the four tribes that make up the Colorado River Indian Tribes. They are the Mohave, Hopi, Navajo and Chemehuevi. The museum explains about the different tribes, and how the came to band together. There are numerous displays of their handy work including exquisitely designed native wares and necessary tools. There is an extensive collection of Chemehuevi baskets which is among the highlights.
There is no fee to enter but contributions are greatly appreciated. There is a gift shop as you enter which is worth going through. There are no photos allowed in the museum so pictures of the wares displayed in the gift shop are worth some time.

It's a small museum but very nice. A large collection of baskets and bead work. Not very cluttered and easy to follow along. Docent was knowledgeable and very friendly. Daddy and daughter day with my nine year old. Thirty minutes is all she could take but I could have stayed longer. It was Earth Day so we were invited to the Park on the Reservation for lunch and local activities. Seventh year running and my daughter had a wonderful time. Already making plans for next year!

It is small but nice. The collection of cradle boards, beading work, clay work and woven baskets is very nice. It seems more like a gallery than an museum since there is not much labeling. Beautiful work. Authentic music in the background. Free.

July 12, 2009: The Colorado River Indian Tribe's Cultural Resource Director, Dr. Michael Tsosie has a top flight scholarly and a personal knowledge of life in the lower Colorado River Valley. The museum is moving to Parker's movie in the center of town and promises to be an interesting visit.

Went to this museum to find out about the local Indian tribes of the area. They were very friendly and had a great staff that gave us a lot of history about the 4 tribes that make up the area. Nice blankets and items for sale that are made there. **They have MOVED to 133 Riverside Drive which is the main street of Parker and are in a shopping center.** You have to look for it. It is a small space and they cannot display all of their items but I was told that they are trying to build a new museum. Worth a stop to see what they have and learn the history. No Fee but you can buy something or leave a donation. Open M-F 8 AM to 5 PM. 928-669-8970.

Beautiful beadwork! Great collection of baskets and jars! Fairly small so it is doable in an hour or less. The price is right! Nice shop if you would like.

It's been awhile since I've been to this museum, so I'm sure it's improved with additional exhibits during that time. It's focus is on the interesting local tribal history & should be an added attraction for all Parker, Arizona area visitors. Information contained herein provides an understanding of those tribes residing in the Colorado River area. The museum is only a short drive from downtown Parker and is well worth the drive.

My son took us to go enjoy day a 2nd Thanksgiving meal with his in laws. I must say driving through the desert did not prepare me for what was to come. The beautiful red mountains, the serene skies, the river flowing. This is a true hidden jewel and now understand why the locals keep it to themselves. You will find a golf course, a casino, lots of RV places. Good for motorbike racing in the mountains, lots of trails.
