About
A visit to the Favell Museum is a must for anyone who loves Native American artifacts, and Contemporary Western art.Over 100,000 artifacts, illustrating the lives of indigenous tribes from North and South America are on display, with the primary focus on Native American tribes. Collections dating from 12,000 years ago include thousands of arrowheads, obsidian knives, spear points, primitive ancient stone tools, native clothing, intricate bead work, basketry, pottery and more. The collections on display give the visitor a suggestion of the richness and variety of societies no longer here and they illustrate how creative and adaptive the native people were. The artifacts give you a feel for what it must have been like for the early Native Americans to survive and thrive in southern Oregon, on the Columbia River and up and down the west coast of North and South America. Cultures from the mid-west to the Pacific and from Peru to Alaska are represented.

Worthwhile museum
Oct 2020 • Couples
Spent an enjoyable time visiting this Native American museum. We were luck to be there when they were are also having an art display of local artists. Lots of arrowheads from different areas and tribes plus lots more! Informative and well done display of Mr Favell’s lifetime collection. Entrance
fee was just $10 each. Good museum in the Klamath Falls area. Not open every day so check days and times. We were there on Tuesday morning.

Good displays of American Indian artifacts
Aug 2020
This was a slightly rushed museum visit as we had less than a hour to see everything due to closing time. However, we felt we had enough time to see the amazing displays of arrow heads, art work and various other pieces of American Indian items on display there. This was an excellent museum if one is interested in American Indian history and artwork. Very nice! It was interesting to read about Mr. Favell and how he collected all of the items and then got the museum started. No photos were allowed which was too bad as there were some beautiful arrangements of arrowheads that I would have loved to have pics of to remember.

Excellent museum
Jul 2019 • Couples
We visited this museum and it has the most wonderful collection of artifacts from the surrounding areas and gives you a very good picture of life as it was over the decades. The young man at the front desk was knowledgeable and helpful and the design of the museum and displays excellent. They also have quality craft goods for sale. Well worth a visit.

Excellent Collection of Artifacts
Jun 2019 • Family
Put into perspective, this is an interesting collection of pieces, most of which were collected and found by Mr. Favell himself throughout his lifetime. It gives one perspective of the Klamath native people, but also in the way their cultures have been historically presented.

Too expensive
May 2019 • Friends
Since there is no falls in Klamath Falls we decided to go here but it was way over our budget so just walked around the outside

What a museum!
Feb 2019 • Couples
It has an extraordinary amount of Indian artifacts. It happens to be very interesting. It’s a smaller museum but it’s laid out very well and has more than you think. It was way more than we expected. Largest Indian artifacts collection we have ever seen. They get no financial help other than donations.
We got to hear about Mr. Faval’s history and how he started at age 8 collecting arrowheads in the area. The young man really seemed to love his job! According to Mr. Faval he has the second largest collection in the world and only Custer had more!!
Be prepared to be amazed!

Highly Recommended Western History Museum
Sep 2018
The Favell Museum is amazing. Too many artifacts to even try to describe. You need to get there to see it for yourself.
