  • Lovely museum. Enjoyed the pottery collection and video on how one type of pottery is made. The exhibit on the Native American Standing Rock Protest in ND over the oil pipeline was very good. Another example of the federal government running roughshod over Native Americans.
  • Especially appreciated the video of Maria Montoya Martinez at work. The Pottery Room is beautiful and very informative.
