“Educational and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Besides the landscape itself, this museum is the best thing Warm Springs has to offer in our opinion. It is well-done, informative, educational, peaceful, interactive, and of interest to young and old alike.

“Always an amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

The museum itself is quite beautiful. Located alongside highway 97 in the town of Warm Springs, the museum wonderfully tells the story of the peoples of the region, their culture and art. I cannot recommend enough making a stop here anytime of the year.

“Beautiful, Informative and Inspiring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

The museum is located in a beautiful building designed to evoke tepees and the landscape of the high desert. It's collections and informational displays reflect the history of the three tribes on the reservation. It's extremely well done, with many heirlooms donated by tribal members, videos, sound recordings, dioramas, models, etc. It was impressive to see how the 3 tribes came together and found a way to preserve their heritage (despite the best efforts of Euro-Americans!) while developing industries to help them survive in the modern world.

“Calming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is very informational. I always enjoy just walking around checking out the pictures.
It is always very quiet so it is always nice to just relax and look at pictures and info.

“Best they have”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very pricey and seemed to be aimed at making money off tourist. Facility was clean an well lighted but was disappointed in the variety and quality of the displays. More of a rendering than a museum.
