This museum (often closed noon to 1pm) has Miwok and Paiute artifacts, including woven baskets, beaded buckskin dresses and dance capes made from feathers, and Native American cultural demonstrators engage visitors with traditional basket weaving, tool-making and crafts. There’s also an art gallery with paintings and photographs from the museum’s permanent collection.

Behind the museum, a self-guided interpretive trail winds past the reconstructed 1870s Indian Village of Ahwahnee with pounding stones, an acorn granary, a ceremonial roundhouse and a conical bark house.
