The Frisco Native American Museum was excellent. It appears to be very small from the street but is very deep. Many tribes are represented and the person we spoke with (I believe she is the curator or the assistant curator) was very helpful to adults...More

Quaint little place. Needs major repair and updating. Nice roadside attraction. Glad they do not charge too much, because it would not be worth more than what they charge.
