Absolutely one of the best museums in the country that teaches about the Native American and Westwood experience and blends into it the true experiences of Black, Latino and Asian peoples... more »
We took our boys here for a nice family day. The exhibits are quite extensive and very well kept. The staff was very friendly, there is a fun area for kids as well. Very informative and reasonably priced as well. We will definitely be back.
What a wonderful facility. My wife and I visited last week and certainly enjoyed our time there. Staff is impeccably trained and friendly. Exhibits were thought-provoking and impressive. Displays were separated by type of art (play space for paintings, a space for baskets, Etc.) I personally found this to be well done. If you enjoy the culture of Native Americans or Western Art, it is not to be missed. Plan on spending two to three hours. Do not pass by the gift shop thinking it is probably full of standard gift shop trinkets. The content is impressive. We loved our visit, and have been talking about it with one another off and on since being there. Truth be told, it wasn't just a visit. It was an experience.
