Before or after viewing the actual Window Rock on the road past Dine College and the Navajo Nation's administrative headquarters, you really must visit the Museum. Housed in an impressive building, if you look beyond the obligatory gift shop and food court, what stands out...More

This is a modern but small museum rich with history of the Navajo. It looks like there might be room for expansion and the ability to add more exhibits. The gift shop had sparce merchandise and was a disappointment.

The museum explains very well the history and culture of the Navajo people and the importance of the code talkers. It was also good to read the treaties. Everything is well displayed and there is also an interesting modern art Navajo exhibition.

Very moving display honoring the Navajo Code Talkers. It gives you a great look into the code talkers and the importance they played during the war. Other Navajo exhibits including art, historical pieces and a beautiful gift shop add to the tour.
