I grew up in AZ and my family and I would stop at side shops during our vacations. Most where old Indian shops. This place brought back a lot of memories of my Grandfather as well as family vacations. Great museum of antiques as well as gifts and fun toys. Staff was very friendly and answered questions.

This place has interesting items I've never seen anywhere else. I bought a tomahawk necklace for my honey. He got a beautiful fall sweater with horses on it. Next trip there I'm buying more!! Go check it out

We stopped by Saturday evening and enjoyed looking through the beautiful native American jewelry with Anna as our guide. We so enjoyed the visit we came back on Sunday to see her in her Sunday outfit and Jewelry. Very personable and friendly. Thank you!

This establishment is part museum and part store. If you were to ask about items in the museum the staff is very knowledgeable. Some items are hundreds of years old and kinda sad to see them not in proper temperature controlled environment. You can buy some locally made jewelry in the store but yes items are from China as well... More

I remember going to Parson's as a kid! If you're into Native American history and culture, you'll love the "museum" half, which also has items for sale. Check out the selection of beads, if you're into Native American beading, or any type of jewelry making! The other half is a mix of Native American art/crafts and typical touristy items. EVERY...

I wanted to stop here because it seemed different. They have Indian souvenirs as well as some t-shirts, toys, and such. There are also some old things on display which is rather interesting. It's a fun little stop but not your typical souvenir shop. Good place to go if you are looking for something a little different.

I remember going to this place when I was younger. There is kind of a musty odor when you walk in, but don't think about it after awhile. Loved seeing the head dresses, arrow heads and statues. There are plenty of little trinkets for kids to buy.

This purports to be a museum, but is actually a store which has a few real artifacts from native Americans on token display. The goods on offer vary in quality, and include some which are made in China. Having said that, we did find some genuine items which were worth buying, and staff are helpful, especially the senior citizen at... More
