Inside you'll find displays and exhibits of historic, prehistoric, and contemporary Indian arts and culture mostly from the Southwest and Northern Mexico. There are a number of things to see throughout; pottery, bone and clay artifacts, stone tools and objects, jewelry, and various weaving's (i.e. blankets, rugs, baskets). The museum is known for its annual rug auction fundraiser.
They have tours, activities, lectures, presentations, guest artist series and more throughout the year. Almost every weekend there is something happening from new exhibits to watching art in action with the guest artists. Have a look at the quite full events calendar.
