This is a very impressive museum with multiple galleries, a beautiful central atrium and excellent displays. I would love to see them evolve some of their exhibits with a little more background for those of us who visit and aren't 'in the know' already. For example, there was memorabilia from a Navajo Code talker, and a tribute to the Code... More

Well done. Five sections include a very nice collection of Navajo artists' work, information about the WWII Code Talkers, artefacts of the Navajo Nation, and the moving story of the relocation of the Navajo, their costly but stubborn resistance to the new land, and their successful return to their homeland. There is also a good 20 minute movie showing on... More

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...

Ĺots off exhibitions but doesn't really give a in depth history of the Navajo nation more modern art on display. Learned more about Navajo nation from guide at Monument Valley and visitors centre at Canyon de Chille. Shop was poor more socks on sale than anything else.
