The museum was a fascinating place. My children spent a lot of time brushing the wool and spinning it to yarn. I loved the poetry, the Navajo's philosophy of believing your spirit can heal itself. The video of how the world was formed was interesting and unique. The museum is not big, but one can easily spend 2-3 hours if... More

We went to Tuba city on our way to the Grand Canyon to visit this museum and would highly recommend it. Learned lots about Navajo history and current state of affairs. It is great to see that the Navajo are resilient and emerging strong from the colonial genocide that has been inflicted on them... Our kids (7 and 10) especially... More

The museum isn't that big, but it does a decent job telling about Indian history and culture. It's bright and modern. The Navajo code talker section was more focused, but as interesting as you can make it. This museum should be good for kids. The attached trading post has a big selection.

A good introduction to the history and way of life of the Navajo Nation. Allow a good hour to visit and view some of the short videos, and maybe another 15-20 minutes for the trading post next door (which has a big variety of crafts, jewellery and souvenirs). The museum gives a good view of the past and present with... More

I visited this museum while volunteering in Tuba City Arizona with a group of high school students. They enjoyed it and said it gave them a good understanding of the area. My 2 year old enjoyed it because it was interactive and hands on. She could bang drums, touch stuffed goats, and a small water fall outside.

Very inexpensive, but a little on the boring side they should have had more ancient exhibits! With such a long history they should have gone back in time a bit more - not what we were expecting.

We made the mistake of arriving with only 45 minutes to spend in the museum. It was well thought out and highly informative. It was divided into sections with a video introduction to each. All aspects of tribal life were included and although we had some knowledge about the Dine we left having learned so much more. There was also... More
