Navajo Nation Museum
The Navajo Nation Museum features art, ethnographic, archaeological, and archival materials. Archives include more than 40,000 photographs as well as a wide variety of documents, recordings, motion picture film, and videos.

The Navajo Nation Zoo and Botanical Park is the only Native American owned-and-operated Zoo in the Country within a tribally designated park receiving more than 40,000 visitors each year.

The Veteran’s Memorial park is dedicated to the Navajo Code talkers of WWII. The victory in the Pacific arena of that war was attributed to the Navajo code talkers providing secure communications for the US military. Since the Navajo language is not a written language, the Japanese could not study the words nor interpret the communications during the war.
