This made for really fun afternoon. Even the permanent exhibits of Native American art, bird carvings and covered bridges are quite interesting and well done. Make sure to take time to walk around the grounds to see the various sculptures.

The wildlife art is impressive . The Covered Bridges exhibit was informative. The exhibit that most struck me is the Native Amerian collection. Most of the pieces are from the West....Navajo and Hopi. Exquisite!

You'll be greeted by 3 artistic renderings of a moose. Inside is a covered bridge museum - not terribly interesting, but a short video makes up for it. Be sure to watch. There is also a gallery of native American artwork - surprisingly good. The...More

We have been to this gallery twice, and will definitely go again. It has an absolutely amazing collection of wildlife art, as well as a world-class collection of art by and about Native Americans. Both collections have some of the best pieces we've seen anywhere,...More
