  • Tucked inside the visitors’ center the museum is essentially a display but it is no ordinary display - it’s modesty almost conceals it’s genuine expression of the area’s heart.  more »
  • There is no centralized Code Talkers Museum. Every town has something. This one is inside the Gallup Visitors Center. 6 glass cases; a couple of uniforms, pictures and write ups. Tuba City has more th...  more »
  • Not really a museum but an interesting display of info about the Navajo Code Talkers, the origin of the group and their training.  more »

  • Very friendly helpful staff. Takes 15 minutes to read displays but worth every minute. Just drop in and have the kids understand something of the people who fought for this country. The book on the code talkers is available on audio and would be great to listen during the drive
  • Locally, this is referred to as the Navajo Code Talkers Museum, but in truth it is more accurately a Navajo Code Talkers "Exhibit". I gave it 3 stars because of its WW2 Historical value. The men who participated contributed greatly to the War Effort and some laid down their lives doing so. This exhibit is housed in the same building as the Gallup Chamber of commerce. It is free to the public, but is set up in a room which is also rented out for events, so it is advisable to call ahead and make sure it is open to the public on the day you plan to visit. This building is 1 block from the Gallup Cultural Museum and 2 blocks from the Rex Museum. If you are already hitting those, then this is a natural addition to your visit (it is located between the 2 others).
  • Where in the hell is it? First I see chamber of commerce then I see window rock. Please update
  • Not really a museum, just a small exhibit. But it is very informative.
  • A small but wonderful tribute to a group of very brave Americans.
