The Museum of Native American History invites visitors to walk through America's past. From the woolly mammoth skeleton that greets guests at the front door to rare Mississippian head pots to the early reservation period, the museum's authentic collection of artifacts gives a glimpse into the richly diverse cultural history of the first Americans.
