Red Rock Museum
Several archeological sites here record the presence of the Ancestral Puebloans, a prehistoric farming culture that developed and thrived in the area from 300 to 1200 CE. From 1700 to the present, members of the Navajo tribe have sparsely inhabited the region.
Through interpretive exhibits, the Red Rock Museum chronicles the lives and culture of the Ancestral Puebloans as well as the present-day Zuni, Hopi and Navajo.
The Museum houses permanent displays of Kachinas, pottery, rugs, silver, and turquoise as well as traveling art exhibits. Museum hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday and by appointment
