"The exhibitions at the museum of the Gallup Cultural Center showcase the museums traditional approach to the interpretation of Native American Arts & Culture. Developed through active partnership between Native and non-Native people, the museum's permanent message that Indian cultures are complex diverse, steeped in Tradition and very much alive.
In 1996 the City of Gallup turned to the Southwest Indian Foundation requesting the Foundation take possession of the historic and newly renovated Sante Fe Depot. The City asked the Foundation to turn the building into a Cultural Center. Our concept for the Cultural Center is modeled on the Public Square, where the community, school children, and visitors can gather together for forums, lectures, and celebrate the extraordinarily diverse heritages of our region.
We wish to invite you to this wonderful historic building so that you too can enjoy the many exhibits we have put together - trains, weaving, sandpainting, Historic Route 66, silversmithing, and more come to life in the Storyteller Museum with in depth interviews with experts of that specific field."
