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.

Small museum chronicling the Cocopah Indians of the area. Not very exciting. The gift shop is bigger than the displays.

We were sad to see Indian Hill in such poor condition. 25 years ago this was a nice place to walk among the building. Now some of them are falling in and dangerous. Forget this stop...

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.
