This is a modern but small museum rich with history of the Navajo. It looks like there might be room for expansion and the ability to add more exhibits. The gift shop had sparce merchandise and was a disappointment.

The museum explains very well the history and culture of the Navajo people and the importance of the code talkers. It was also good to read the treaties. Everything is well displayed and there is also an interesting modern art Navajo exhibition.

Very moving display honoring the Navajo Code Talkers. It gives you a great look into the code talkers and the importance they played during the war. Other Navajo exhibits including art, historical pieces and a beautiful gift shop add to the tour.

The museum has changing displays. The one we saw this visit was by native artists, and showed both contemporary and historic works. Labeling was good on the various works. It is a small museum, but worth the visit when in the area.

The highlight of our trip to the museum was going at the same time two busloads of children were onsite. It was so good to see their teachers directing them to specific museum pieces which matched their course of study. Even better was the children's...More

A friendly, welcoming museum with an excellent mix of art and history. I was warmly greeted by the man at the front desk and had the pleasure of meeting the curator, Clarenda Begay, who invited me to observe a weaving class that was underway. I...More
