Amazing collection of art and history. Gift shop and great books and other souvenirs. You could walk through it very quickly, but could also spend a lot of time and learn a lot.

This is a small museum of native art. The docent is very knowledgeable and eager to explain the pieces. There is over 1000 pieces of native carvings collected by a priest over a 50 year period.
