I really thought there would be more history of the settlers, but since there is another museum down the steet (Pioneer Museum) maybe that is why. This museum is primarily about Native Americans such as the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni and Havasupai. There a room full of beautiful jewelry, others of paintings, and pottery and woven rugs. You will leave with... More

In many ways, should have come here first, before going to Sedona, Grand Canyon and Walnut Canyon, to get a better understanding of the native peoples of the area. Amazing collection of pottery and textiles.

This museum is a short visit, if you take kids. The exhibits are great but not very interactive. The museum itself is a beautiful building and a beautiful property. Very affordable.

This small museum has an amazing array of Native American artwork and artifacts (Hopi, Anasazi, Navajo, Sin Agua cultures) as well as a nice array of geological specimens, and helpful placards, etc. It encompasses much of the natural history of the area with dioramas and fossils, as well. For a great, pre-European, orientation to the area, take a couple of... More
