The museum is full of interesting displays on the history of Southwest tribes and great temporary exhibition too. Plus the cafè is really good and not too expensive, great garden with plenty of shadow for hot summer days.

There is excellent Native artwork in so many forms - silversmithing, scultpture, painting, glass making, and much more. Also, examples of early Native life and how their civilizations prospered.
