I was really glad we stopped here. The exhibit was beautifully done and interesting. The gift shop had a wonderful selection of Native American music. I would suggest that they keep music on all the time there - it would add to the atmosphere.

A complete exploration of the Yakama nation with a small but interesting gift shop with locally made Indian crafts. Plan to spend about an hour.

A very well presented museum, well worth a visit. A good focus on the culture and traditions of the Yakama people. Also a very good shop selling handmade bead jewellery, books and clothes

I thoroughly enjoyed an hour looking at displays and reading about the Yakama Nation history. So many sacred Native areas have been drowned by US-permitted damning across the country in recent decades, and the Yakama territory is no exception. I loved the personal touches of...More

Great displays and historical points. Really brings home injustices to our country's native traditions.
