Tamastslikt Cultural Institute is a must stop in Eastern Oregon. Discovering (or re-discovering) the Cayuse tribe history through their point of view is so interesting. The display is great and I love the interactivity between the visitors and the collection, it makes it easy to...More

This is a very nice museum with wonderful displays about the local tribes. An art dislpay from local artists was also fun to see.

This is an interesting cultural museum with old relics, information on the changes that white man has made in the Indians lives, and all in their own words. Gives one a lot to think about.

Loved the exhibit and the layout of the museum and property. There was a visiting exhibit about Alcatraz Island that was a pleasant surprise.

I expected more about the historical culture of local tribes. I got Alcatraz (with no explanation of the connection between local tribes and Alcatraz). I got other stuff. Not so much culture. In retrospect I'd pass.

An informative journey told through the Native perspective. The exhibits are well done and staff will answer questions (just don't be shy).

An incredible documentation of Indian history and the Westward route of discovery. I left the exhibit more informed and more culturally sensitive as the history here is not something anyone would learn in a classroom. This a 'Don't Miss!'
