NileGuide Expert Says:
Celebrates historic and contemporary Native American art, with a focus on the American Southwest. The permanent collection includes works by Shonto Begay, Yazzie Johnson and Gail Bird, and Julia Jumbo. Book signings, lectures, and storytelling hours are held frequently, and the courtyard is a pleasant respite from the city streets just beyond.
- Mary Cabot Wheelwright founded this museum in 1937 as a way to preserve the traditional Navajo religion. Over the years it has undergone several transformations and currently houses an amazing display of traditional and contemporary Native American arts and crafts. The exhibits are on a four-month rotation, so you will always see something new. At The Case Trading Post Museum Shop you can purchase books, jewelry, kachinas and more. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.
