Don't be in a rush when you visit this attraction, take your time and savour all there is too see. Follow the museum in sequence for a chronological adaption (from ice age to now) of the area then prepare to be blown away when you...More

This museum is much more than a collection of artifacts or art - it is a trip back in time that tells the rich history of a people who are still here - alive and well - and the museum shows you why.

I was surprised at what an interesting and exciting museum this is. It brings to life the culture and history of this important Indian tribe. It also brings to life the atrocities that the Native Americans suffered.
