The museum hosts national traveling exhibitions on loan from major metropolitan museums across the country such as the Smithsonian Institute, Michigan State University Museum and Chicago's Field Museum. These exhibits concentraite on American Indian art and culture and each is augmented with Comanche cultural material.

CNMCC is home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Comanche Fine Art in the world! Works by established artists Doc Tate Nevaquaya, Woogie Watchetaker, Larry and Rance Hood, Leonard Riddles, Tim Saupitty, Tim Tate Nevaquaya and Quanah Parker Burgess, just to name a few.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
