Learn more about the colorful and unique history of the Navajo people via various exhibits and an interpretive video.
What was once a one-person, one-room operation, the Navajo Nation Museum is now part of a 54,000-square-foot center housing an collection of art, ethnographic, archaeological and archival materials, including more than 40,000 photographs, as well as a wide variety of documents, recordings, motion picture film, and videos.
We collect anything that helps document the culture and history of the Navajo people, including selected materials from tribal and non-Indian neighbors. Most of the collections are available for on-site study and exhibit loan.
The museum maintains a very active and professional exhibition program, most of which is produced in-house. Most exhibitions highlight the work of Navajo artists in various media, including weavings. These art-oriented exhibitions are interspersed with historical and cultural exhibits.
The Navajo Nation Museum also has a wonderful gift shop that houses various books about Navajo culture, jewelry and other fine collections.
