This museum is adjacent to the Quality Inn, so we walked over and spent a couple hours here one day. Admission is free, but we gave generously to their donations jar. We visited a different Navajo Nation Museum in Tuba City years ago, so I was afraid this would just be a copy. But I like this one more. It's got several galleries on different aspects of Navajo history, art, and life.
When we visited, there was one section on the history of the Navajo Nation, starting around the time of the Long Walk. It was focused largely on Manuelito and his family. Then there was another section on historic and pre-historic artifacts with an emphasis on the pre-Columbian lifestyle. The last exhibit was an unexpected delight - an art exhibit of modern art by native women, largely about native women.
