This museum is in a historical building that was built in 1875 by the United States government. There is historical information and l loved the artwork upstairs.

Interesting and informative museum. GPS directions were lacking. It is just past the VA hospital. Glad we found it. Seems like so many people overlook the history and art of our Native American cultures. The artwork and craftsmanship was also amazing. Small gift shop. Staff...More
