Since I have visited this Indian based theme store for years, I thought I'd stop last year, but it was closed. However, it is open again. But it just is your average souvenir shop, and I didn't bother with seeing the minuscule "museum" they have. But the place was rather busy in early July, on a weekday.

This is pretty much your average gift shop. The "museum" that is mentioned on their sign out front is a small room in the back with a few artifacts and a diorama.

Closed, all authentic Native American artifacts sold/auctioned off. IF it ever reopens, it'll just be another gift shop. Shame. This was always a neat place that I remember from my childhood. I already miss it.

This store has closed, I miss it and hope somebody will eventually buy it and re open it, I've been going there since I was a kid, it's sad to see it closed.

There is so much stuff in this place, you are sure to find the perfect nick knack to take home with you. The woven blankets are a good value, have had mine for several years & it's held up great.

Someplace we go every year. Very sad to see it close. Everything is on clearance. Our family has enjoyed the store and always bought a glass bottle of pop out of the old time cooler inside the door.
