Located in Grace Hudson's redwood home. Amazing native Pomo art and baskets. Other exhibits rotate in and the occasional speakers are worth it.

A lovely surprise in the small town of Ukiah. Learn about local history and the native Pomo people, see examples of their exquisite baskets and visit the craftsman home where artist Grace Hudson worked on the paintings of Pomo people that hang in the museum.

Her pictures are awesome and in some cases look 3D. The Indian artifacts were also outstanding, including the baskets. We didn't have time to tour the house, but will make sure to make time when next in Ukiah.
