Top quality museum and it's free!

This is an excellent museum, with educational interesting exhibits. The building is very beautiful and easy to access from the main road, right next door to the zoo. Well done.

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.

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.

Window Rock is about a half hour north of Gallup, which was on our route traveling west. A number of things to see here, including the Navajo Nation Museum. You can also walk to the base of Window Rock and there is a memorial there for the Navajo Code Talkers of WWII.

This is a great conference venue with good sized rooms and helpful staff. Additionally, the museum is an attraction that shares much of Navajo culture and history in ways that are very approachable. The staff provide highlights such as a portable astronomy activity center and are very helpful to visitors.
