Yosemite Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Places of cultural interest in the valley include the Yosemite Museum , which has Miwok and Paiute artifacts, including woven baskets, beaded buckskin dresses and dance capes made from feathers. Renowned local basket-weaver Julia Parker is often around for a demonstration and to answer questions. There's also an art gallery and, behind the museum, a reconstructed Indian village c 1870.
A self-guided interpretive trail winds past pounding stones, an acorn granary, a ceremonial roundhouse and a conical bark house.
