This very unique, small museum, focuses on mostly local, Native American art, crafts and artifacts. It is located a couple of miles from downtown Prescott - worth finding. The museum exhibits beautiful rugs, paintings bead-work. pottery and sculptures. Originally, a creation of well-intentioned, non-Native Americans, the Smoki "people" left a legacy of outstanding Native American art for all to enjoy.... More

A small building that will take about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to visit. Great explanation and history of the local Indians. Well worth the time.

We were pleased to find this gem open Sunday afternoon. Although the premise of this museum was to preserve the annual rodeo and the founders dressed up themselves and their families to perform Hopi dances , the displays of artifacts from Prescott and the surrounding areas was very extensive. There are exhibits on pottery, basketry and the local history of... More

The museum is about 1/2 mile from downtown. It tells the story of the Smoki (smoke eye) Club. Why it was formed and how it was transformed over the years. Learn about Slim Woman

THis is a small but rewarding museum. The building itself is interesting, and the docents were helpful and friendly. This is a self guided tour that is reasonably priced. The pottery, jewelry and artifacts they have were excellent and the educational displays and presentations were informative and interesting. Nice little gift shop with proceeds going to preservation of the museum.... More

Tucked away in Prescott, is the Smoki Museum. You can easily spend a couple of hours there really studying all of the items and stories that the displays have to offer, giving you new insights into an ancient past.

This is a beautiful little museum that showcases early Indian artifacts from the area. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the museum is very interesting. It only takes an hour or two to visit and is well worth the time.

On a rainy morning, looking for more of an indoor activity, my husband and I went to the Smoki Museum. It is filled with wonderful Indian artifacts as well as beautiful handmade quilts. An interesting way to spend an hour or two.

Upon entering this museum it smells quite musty - not good if you have allergies or asthma. The people though are friendly and knowledgeable. Many artifacts and historical information on the Hopi Indians and local history. They really need to air this building out though. Nice Indian quilts but I can only imagine the damage due to the smell.
