“Very specialized”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

As complete a collection and display of artifacts about a specialized subject as you'll find anywhere. You have to be interested in anthropology, or your eyes will glaze pretty quickly. If you're a student of history, or of anthropology, you could spend hours here.

“Indian Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

My husband and I went walking around that area and saw the sign 'Indian Museum' thought it would be nice to check it out and we had a wonderful time and would go there again. It was small but the collections, the art work, pictures etc were just amazing, I recommend it for anyone to go and enjoy.
