We didn't know what to expect when we stopped in but was overwhelmed by the collection of pottery and baskets. Docent was very friendly (as was his great dog) and we learned things that we didn't know before walking in. Definitely worth the stop. Thanks.

Excellent small museum that displays artifacts and displays about people who have lived in the Prescott area. It will not take you long and if you plan to see other Prescott area museums, ask about the museum pass.

A small building that will take about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to visit. Great explanation and history of the local Indians. Well worth the time.
