  • The museum is staffed by a very friendly guy who has lots of information to share about Gallup, Native Americans. It is full of interesting artefacts from the local area. Please visit to support a small, independent museum.
  • Nice small museum with stuff from the late 1800s to the 1980s. Guy that oversees the museum is cool.
  • Found it very interesting lot of information of the past
  • Marginally interesting place to visit. No fee, only a suggested donation. The owners apparently like to keep quiet the most interesting footnote on this building, which is that it used to house a Gallup Bordello, way back in the day.
  • Quaint little museum with knowledgeable docent.
