As a non-Zuni person, I found this museum very informative as to zuni history. It looks a little beat up on the outside but the content inside of great. I spent quite a while there going though the exhibits

Easy to miss due to the faded sign, this little museum is an excellent introduction to Zuni. Archaeology buffs will see a detailed account of the excavations of the ancestral pueblo of Hawikku, and some marvelous vintage black and white film of the old days.

The conversation with the curator was fascinating. He explained the up coming religious celebration and reminded us not to photograph natives without their permission.
