As others have noted, this is a small room off the hotel lobby near the gift shop. What little they have is worth seeing, but there is little explanation of most of it. I was most intrigued by some of the pictures. Some individuals were striking in appearance. I wish there had been more information about everything. It was free.

The museum is a small room in the Quechan Casino. It has some beautiful artifacts. No one was there to answer questions... just a pleasant little room to walk around.

I've visited this location many times & have taken family, friends & students there. If one one to learn of one local Indian tribe, this is the place to go.

Complete lack of service and hospitality. Cold employees should be working for the TSA. I will never return. Bye Bye Quechan

At this point the museum is no longer open and the gift shop is extremely small. I was expecting it to be way different but I had so much curiosity that I decided to see it for myself. As it turns out its a trailer with a few items on sale and nothing more.

The items displayed were nice and interesting but there were not many of them. The museum is in their casino.

Perfect for what I was looking for... Taking a bit of Yuma culture home for my daughter! Only took cash though so I had to hit the ATM at the casino...

Very difficult to find, then it turns out it is just an Indian store in a trailer, not really a museum.

We just walked by and stopped to look into it. Interesting pictures and artifacts of the Indian's life and historical communities
