Fodor's Review

The tribe operates this enlightening 7,000-square-foot museum, which is set inside a geodesic dome–shape structure that is meant to recall a traditional Navajo hogan. Inside the dome is a vast trove of artifacts, photos, artwork, and memorabilia. One of the more poignant exhibits tells of the infamous "Long Walk" of 1864, when the U.S. military forced the Navajo to leave their native lands and march to an encampment at Fort Sumner, New Mexico, where they were confined for more than four years. Admission also includes entry to the small Navajo Code Talkers Memorial Museum in the back of the Tuba City Trading Post next door. Both facilities are adjacent to the Quality Inn Navajo Nation. From November through February, reservations are required to visit, which you can obtain through the Quality Inn Navajo Nation.
