We had our Gathering of Healers event at the museum for two days. It's a wonderful place with a nice auditorium and art presentation area and a great outside area where we had a drum circle... There are beautiful sheer cliffs surrounding the site.... just beautiful!

This museum provides information on the Navajo Indian's Trail of Tears. It houses samples of Native American artifacts, clothing and crafts. The museum currently has an exhibit of art pieces on the theme "if I could speak," It was a very enjoyable exhibit and a nice museum to spend time in.

Exquisite Representation of the Navajo People and their culture! Especially the section on the Navajo Code Talkers. My husband and I met Two of them several years in Albuquerque !

The museum is filled with information that I have not seen offered elsewhere. The layout is along the walls and easy to understand. One must be patient and take a little more time to grasp what is truly on display..

The building appears to double as an educational center for children When we arrived, a large group of children were busy with a teacher led project. I also noted that Finding Nemo was being played in the Navajo language! So happy to see this as I know many native American languages have disappeared because the children were not educated in...

The Navajo nation museum was a learning experience not to be missed! It was a history of unknown to most and has artifacts and photographs of Navajo or Dine people and the sad history of how they were treated at Fort Defiance as well as the proud heritage of how they endured and re-settled in their native land.

We went to learn about Navajo history and were delighted with the results. Many displays of Navajo artifacts. Found some very good books to buy. We are interested in the religion and the culture along with the history. We felt overwhelmed.

This is so worth a visit. Very well presented. Some of the paintings on display are just beautiful. The history documented and the displays to support it are first class. Particularly the information and photos of the long march and the Navajo code speakers who helped so much in the war.

Thank brisdi
