Definitely worth a stop. Truly amazing geology section - much more than just a local focus - global.

“Wind Talker Gallery”

There is such a wonderful history about the wind talkers and this museum covers a lot of their story. I could have spent all day in this museum.

“Very Educational and Crafts were beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2011

Wonderful museum for Indian art, crafts, jewelry and Arizona history. This museum was well laid out and logical. They direct you to start in the creation of the land and more archeological and geological area and various creation periods. There is even a dinosaur skeleton and fossils!

Other sections include history of the native Indians (Navajo, Hopi, Havasupai and Zuni) and their crafts, arts and lifestyle. Lots of photographs, basket-weaving, pottery, jewelry and other arts bring in all to life.

This is definitely a must-see. Even though not very large, the exhibit is thorough and interesting. I bought several things in the gift shop.
