This recently built museum provided a great review of the 3 tribes interactions with settlers and the formation of the reservation. Wonderful music and voices on display, with a very charming exhibit featuring children's art. Would definitely recommend a visit.

The museum has an abundance of materials about the reservation on the Columbia River, Piute, and Warm Springs. It has divided the rooms into special categories such as local beading, basket making, utensils, and people. There is a gift shop and an art display.All is very interesting…

We have passed this museum many times on our way to Portland and never stopped. We decided to make it a destination for an afternoon drive. It did not disappoint. We were greeted warmly and told how to walk the exhibits. We especially liked how the first video area set the stage for absorbing their history and culture. This museum is a nice balance of artifacts, information and interactive video presentations. My husband usually gets impatient in most museums but he enjoyed this one a lot.…

My 18 year old son and I really enjoyed the museum. Nice mix of displays and audio and video. Told the stories of three tribes, the Warm Springs, Paiute, and a third tribe in the area. Worth a stop on your way to Bend.

This is a very special museum and you will get lost in viewing, listening and interacting with the permanent exhibits. Then stroll into the changing arts gallery to enjoy the temporary exhibit of ( usually) works by lical artists. The gift shop has so many treasures, much of which are made by local artists. In addition there are beautiful Pendleton Wool blankets and bags, great books, Native music, huckleberry candy and coffee. A great way to spend an afternoon by yourself or with friends and family. Kid friendly.…
