Hidden gem! Old but well done dioramas including a huge moose, grizzly and rattlesnake. Stunning collection of basket weaving. Authentic souvenirs for sale at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend. Sharon the caretaker was excellent.

Great local museum with some of the most beautiful baskets ever. This is a must see if you are in the area, easy drive from Bass Lake too. Learn about the local Mono tribe and see the wonderful baskets and other items they make.

This is a tremendous opportunity to see and learn about history. The displays are very professional and interesting. There are wildlife exhibits as well as baskets and artifacts and peeks into a very rich culture and heritage. You will be glad you stopped by.

I expected to have one room for this museum, and I was right, BUT it's amazing what can be crammed into one room! There are dozens of natural history taxidermy specimens, but the best part is the exhibit PRECIOUS CARGO which was travelling for awhile...More

Lots of woven baskets and arrow heads here. Exhibits showing how the Indians survived prior to the arrival of Europeans.Many artifacts but many are not labeled. Person on staff pretty much ignored our group until a question was asked; then she became very helpful.
