  • Interesting and enlightening museum. Totally unexpected displays and beautifully curated. Would recommend for anyone interested in Native American Culture both old and new.  more »
  • We visited this museum one afternoon and enjoyed the art very much. I learned so much from the artwork and some of the traditions that the Indians had from early stages.  more »

  • This museum is amazing! It focuses more on "anthropology" than "art," but the items they have and the contextual information they provide on the various first cultures and items really help to understand these peoples. This is one of the best museums on Southwest Native Americans I have ever encountered, and can't be missed if you have any interest in this subject!
  • Lovely museum of mid-century modern design and folk art featuring a lot of toys and miniatures. Cited with several other museums and a botanical garden. Beautiful location with views. The cafe is great for lunch.
