Description

Permanent collections include a wide variety of Native American baskets and cultural artifacts. Also on display is the Tettleton Wildlife Diorama Collection consisting of over 100 freestanding taxidermy animals of North America and Asia. Other collections include historical photographs, cultural items, beadwork and weapons.

Our gift shop is stocked with locally made authentic Indian Crafts, books and gifts. Every Thursday from 11-1:30 p.m., Elders gather to weave, bead and dine on potluck lunch. During the fall they can be found cracking acorn for holiday events or cleaning Sourberry and Redbud sticks for weaving supplies.

Guided tours offer a walk through the collections, stories, songs, and nature walk with signage explaining usage of indigenous plants. Classes in language and Basketry are held throughout the year. Visiting the museum offers a glimpse at Mono Indian lifestyles of yesterday and today.

Regular Business hours: OCTOBER THRU JUNE Monday through Friday 10 a.m. - 3:30 p.m; JUNE -SEPTEMBER: MON-FRI 10 - 3:30 SATURDAY 10-5PM
