I purchased a pueblo wool rug, authenticated with the weaver's signature, that was at a price point where I wasn't being ripped off, yet the weaver's work was valued.

Small museum on campus, and they have some interesting pieces of pottery on display. There is no admission fee, and they will issue you a parking pass so you can park right by the museum, so please give them a nice donation.

We enjoyed our time here. They have a small parking lot adjacent to the museum that is free. The college students staffing it seemed bored and uninterested. I would have appreciated some information on arrival. We did notice some outdated information on the displays it...More

This museum not only has Native American artifacts, but modern art, as well as an Evolution of Man section. Really beautiful artifacts in a beautiful space. The museum is free with $5 recommended donation.
