Stopped off at the Burger King for lunch (on way to Momument Valley) and spent a good amount of time looking at the exhibit, since its free whilst you eat was suitably entertained by it.

My family and I went to visit Monument Valley. My lovely niece booked us a tour on the Navaho Reservation. The visitors centre and museum was beautiful and well laid out. Our guide met us at the hotel lobby on time and smiling. Duffy Holiday was his name. Five of us in this family group and he became the sixth member of our family,by tours end.
Duffy drove us onto the Reservation, beautiful desert red land and rock formations.
My favourite part of this tour was being taught how to see the invisible cave dwellings, food stores and campsites. Fascinated by the ancient pottery pieces, and the Navaho refrigerator!
I was disappointed not to be able to climb up onto the rocks due to my disability. No matter the view from below just as beautiful as the view from above.
Make sure you bring a camera as you will not be able to stop taking pictures of Everything!
Be ready to walk,climb and scamper comfy shoes a must.
Give yourself plenty of time as there is much to see, stories and culture to be imparted. Our group age ranged from 59 to 15 and Duffy was able to relate to us all in a lovely respectful manor.
He is a really great character, great sense of the humorous. He answered all our questions, no question to silly to ask. We travelled at a leisurely pace and heard detailed historical facts previously unknown. Over all I would recommend this tour highly and if you are lucky you will get to meet Duffy as your guide to sights and wonders of this beautiful land and Navaho Nation!
PS. Bring water,go to the bathroom before you start the tour and if you bring food DO NOT leave any trash.

it's very interesting to know how they helped the U.S. in WWII, not a lot of artifacts but interesting information

Didn't even know this was here until we drove by and it was advertised. It made our decision as to where breakfast was going to be the next morning. Thank you!

We stopped at Burger King to get a cold beverage and found wonderful treasures. This Navajo Code Talkers display is the length of a wall and has double decker display cabinets on all four sides. This display was assembled by the son of King Mike Sr., one of the Navajo Code Talkers. There are photos, letters, newspaper and magazine articles, pieces of memorabilia (guns, helmets, ribbons, items used by the soldiers in war) and the list goes on. Everything displayed is authentic and meant to educate people and acknowledge and honor those who fought. We also enjoyed the Navajo Code Talker doll that is still in the original box. In one section of this 4 sided display, is a computer that people can use (great for when away from home computer.)
Then as we went to the restroom we were impressed to see a weaving display that spanned the length of the hall. It had a small weaving display in the center, with entire rest of the display showing how the locals made the different color yarn. They labeled a sample plant and put a sample dyed piece of yarn. There are hundreds of different plants with the corresponding dyed pieces of yarn; incredible! In addition,to these fabulous displays, one can find more just outside and to the back of the Burger King. There is an actual Hogan to go into and there is a Sweat Lodge and an additional building that has a lot of WWII memorabilia, including posters, swords, photos, etc. This is definitely Not To Be Missed and worth the time to stop.
