  • Huge! collection beautiful Indian Jewelry. Traces the history of Indian Jewelry making. Clean, spacious, in a lovely natural setting. First Sunday of the month is free admission.
  • Case trading post is the name of their gift shop, check it out its great.
  • Very interesting and helpful staff.
  • I went with a group and I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The art was various and interesting. I noticed how much pottery had changed after the Spanish conquest!! Very subtle and sophisticated before, much less so afterward, although still beautiful ... I also really liked the mural inside the entrance.
  • Amazing, authentic native American Art and Jewelry
