“Wonderful museum in the middle of the Cocopah Reservation”
Nov 2, 2016
“Small but interesting!”
Built in 1996, the Cocopah Museum and Cultural Center include hand-crafted exhibits, meeting space and a gift shop. The museum which resides on the West Reservation is surrounded by a 1.5-acre park features luxurious native trees and plants and a...more
This museum has so much information presented in an easily accessible way in a small museum. It's great for all ages but not overwhelming. It is beautifully maintained and the gift shop has wonderful items that work for gifts.

We were sad to see Indian Hill in such poor condition.

We believe this reviewer is confusing the Cocopah Museum with the Quechan Museum.
The Quechan Museum is located on Indian Hill on Quechan land.
The Cocopah Museum is located on the West Cocopah Reservation and is currently open and in very good condition.
