Fodor's Review

Run by the Osoyoos Indian Band, this well-designed museum—the name is pronounced "in-ka-meep"—has exhibits about the area's aboriginal community, the region's natural setting, and the animals that make their home in this desert environment. Don't miss "Sssnakes Alive!," a daily show featuring live rattlesnakes and other creatures native to the area. You can also walk to a reconstructed village that includes two pit houses, a tepee, and a sweat lodge. (Bring water, since there's little shade along the trails.) The center's exterior is a striking, environmentally friendly earth wall built of a mix of soil, water, a small amount of cement, and pigment.
