This is a small museum that doesn't take long to see. The works are by current artists who are Native Americans. Many use historical influences while creating something new and different.

This museum is so small - it was disappointing! We took our 9 year old child, looked and read as much as possible. The tour took 15 minutes.

Very small exhibit. $5 admission. Not much here. More shop than museum. Small cafe, but a large parking lot. Disappointed. Go to downtown Phoenix campus, much more interesting. Pass.
