Description

Opening in 1980, The Yakama Nation Museum is one of the oldest Native American Museum in the Northwest. The 12,000 square foot exhibition hall is the result of years of hope, thought, and effort part of the Yakama people.

The great dioramas and exhibits of the museum tell the story of the Yakama people by the Yakamas themselves - the only museum of its kind. Spilya'y will be your guide. Through a blend of dramatic visual and listening experiences, and from an explanatory wall poetry, rich with oral tradition, you will be taken from time immemorial, through the world of our ancestors, and up to the present.

We invite you to come encounter the "Yakama Experience", "The Challenge of Spilyay.”, and our newly remodeled north wing of our exhibition hall.
