I was surprised that the museum had very little on recent history. The exhibits were bizarre. The musical instruments action was best and there were some people playing which was really good. Some of the exhibits just didn't exist (a completely empty area below a sign on oil and gas development). There were statues without plaques and random stuff. Parts of the museum smelled like urine. I suspect that, given resources, the museum isn't a high priority. It didn't help that staff seemed disinterested in the whole affair. Regardless, it was worth the visit for some of the information on tribes, music, pottery and so on. We also think it important to visit the museum to support its development. A really good museum would help with tourism in the city. We walked from downtown to the museum, which, though a long walk, was great to get a feel for the city. Then we took a boda-boda to the craft stalls- which was an adventure worth the trip.
