  • Enjoyed visiting the museum. Worker there is very nice and friendly. He knew about the history and was able to answer our questions without feeling obligated. Loved to see the history and actually read old pieces that are hard to find. Was worth stopping by!
  • So interesting. Super tiny. The gentleman at the entrance is so welcoming.
  • Thr City pf Gallup needs to update the City's Museum amd get a bigger biulding, like the Old Post Office whereP the cable company is now, put some great use to that historical building that has some great ceiling wood work, Gallup has more hidden history.
  • This was a waste of time, except for a fascinating conversation with the Navajo gentleman who worked there. Displays thrown together. And boring and sparse. Should have a native american museum in that space instead, not another boring railroad, WWII museum.
  • 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.
