    This is a small quaint museum was established in 1991 -"..to leave our prints as our ancestors did for us, so that our children will have a sense of knowing how they are important"...

    The Museum traces the history of the Agua Caliente Indians from the earliest prehistoric times to the present , through artifacts left by their ancient people and the stories and photographs left by more recent ancestors.

    The evening we stopped by, there was an open evening where members were meeting
    and taking part in refreshments, well they invited us in, and made us very welcome and even offered us wine and refreshments. It was small but a very interesting little museum.
