This museum is stunning, both inside and out. Conveniently located and with a beautiful facade the museum contains excellent art from both western and Native American artists. The new exhibit on the Hollywood western was excellent and contained some really stunning original pieces from movie history. The shop and cafe also offer great food and gifts.

The museum has an interesting exhibit on now (Spring 2018): The Reel West, which includes artifacts and photos and film clips from Westerns, both TV and movies. The permanent exhibits of Native American art and western artists are attractive and attractively displayed. The museums's strongest suits are its excellent gift shop and pleasant restaurant. Admission is $15 for adults/$12 for seniors. A little steep for a small museum collection, but the special exhibit made it worth the price.

If you happen to go at the time of the Indian Market and Festival, you can see the Museum, but also dozens of Native American artisans and musicians. Many interesting exhibits and beautiful artwork.
