Favorite part was the video on pottery and how it is made. Much good historic information in other movies and exhibits on native american life in the U.S.

Make sure to see the shoe exhibit covering remarkable bead work unlike I have ever seen. Combine with the Folk Art Museum next door. Ask for a military discount (sometimes offered.) Enjoy!

The exhibits are always informative and excellent art. I am a former gallery owner/curator and know what I am looking at. This is a can't be missed museum. The gift shop is exceptional also.

This was a very interesting museum with a nice gift shop. The staff was very helpful. The staff recommended a sponsor pass which enables entry to museums all over the country.
