Small Museum

The items displayed were nice and interesting but there were not many of them. The museum is in their casino.

I've visited this location many times & have taken family, friends & students there. If one one to learn of one local Indian tribe, this is the place to go.

Complete lack of service and hospitality. Cold employees should be working for the TSA. I will never return. Bye Bye Quechan

At this point the museum is no longer open and the gift shop is extremely small. I was expecting it to be way different but I had so much curiosity that I decided to see it for myself. As it turns out its a trailer with a few items on sale and nothing more.

Perfect for what I was looking for... Taking a bit of Yuma culture home for my daughter! Only took cash though so I had to hit the ATM at the casino...

Very difficult to find, then it turns out it is just an Indian store in a trailer, not really a museum.

We asked at the Casino and were directed to up near the hospital. Asked at the Tribal offices and they said the museum was closed for repairs but the gift shop was open. Went to the gift shop and there were two ladies there. They said it had been closed for seven years and they didn't expect it to reopen... More

Nice display with interesting pictures. Not a whole lot to see, so you probably won't want to go much out of your way to visit unless you are neck deep in researching the Indian nations of the area. Located in the casino.
