The cultural center was not large but was nicely laid out with interesting facts. The 18 minute movie was worth watching and again had some facts I did not know.

I visited the museum as a part of a bus tour and enjoyed learning about this culture. There is beautiful artwork and souvenirs for sale. The staff was friendly and highly knowledgeable.

They have done a really excellent job on this museum. You start with a well-done movie then examine all the exhibits. The exhibits are well laid out and very informative. It is really worth visiting to get a better understanding of their history.

This was another treasure that provides real history of the native habitants. An eighteen minute video presents a large amount of information. Well worth the minimal admission if you want to learn about the local inhabitants.
