“History, heritage and thriving art....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

The building is hosting art, by local school children and adults.
Am looking forward to receiving purchase of Monument Valley
By 8th grader Anthony APachito.. (Sorry if I spelt that wrong)
Bless your talent , you will do very well.

We saw artifacts, fascinating understanding of life for the Native Americans and their ways of living and thriving in New Mexico. If you're in Gallup, it is so worth a visit.

Please donate a little something if you can, buy some art... It all helps the heritage x and wow, what talent these budding artists have ...

“Small and informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

We started our visit with a cup of Chai and friendly conversation in Angela's Cafe, which is located on the first floor. History is so important and this is the opportunity to learn a little more about Navajo Code Talkers. The museum is on the 2nd floor. Take the time and go upstairs. Walk around and enjoy the displays and exhibits. If you are in Gallup, definitely add this to your list of places to visit.

“Cute cafe and nice upstairs museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We stopped here for the first time and had some awesome carrot cake, espresso, and tea and the little cafe inside. The ladies were so friendly, and there are funny signs all around to read. Upstairs are some cultural and art exhibits to look at. No entry fee. Note that this is also the Amtrak station for Gallup, and there is a small gift shop. Worth a stop for about 20 minutes.

“Amazing as well as informative.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

The second floor museum was full of traditional items made by native craftsmen from bygone years and paintings also. The sand painting on the floor was fabulous. There is also a display dedicated to the Navajo Code Talkers who served during World War Two. Without these men the war could have turned out quite differently.

“Native American Oasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

I love the variety of tribes you can visit. The Navajo (Dine') are great friends, as well as Acoma, Zuni, Laguna, Apache, and others. There is much to learn about living and values that are being embraced by environmentalist that have been a way of life here forever. Give the Native Americans credit! They told us not to destroy the land and destroy for no reason... only now do some of us listen.
