Exhibits were displayed quite nicely and information was good. They do offer traditional dancing on select days. It would be great for anyone and especially good for history buffs

It seems like most of these reviews are all about the "kiva" and the Boy Scouts who do dances. We weren't impressed by the "kiva" and we didn't care to see the dancing. There are perhaps many tourists who are unaware that kivas are sacred...More

The dance show is put on by a Boy Scout troop, with some venture scout girls, doing native dance. They do a nice job. We were there with our Boy Scout troop and they kindly announced us and encouraged the boys. But it's somewhat misleading...More

The Koshare dancers are just unbelievable! A must stop on your way through the area. The museum has beautiful artwork and pottery. Play ahead, call to check hours and shows.
