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.

Great place to visit with lots of information about the Paiutes, Wascos, and those on the Warm Springs reservation. They have a wide variety of artifacts that are well explained and provide a narration for most of them as well.
