Colville Confederated Tribes Museum

The Museum is filled with history collected by the Colville Confederated Tribes (Moses/Columbia, Wenatchee, Okanogan, Entiat-Chelan, Methow, Nez Perce, Palus, Nespelem, Colville, San Poil and Lake).

A gift center occupies the ground floor, where you can buy Native crafts, quilts, books, cards, posters, etc, all related to Native culture. There is also a large stock of videos which can be played to explain the geology and history of the area.

In the entryway, next to a stuffed buffalo, is a well-done mural depicting the Nez Perce Trail as well as a large photo collection.

Inside the main room are displays of basketry, beadwork, clothing and tools from this area. A diorama at the end depicts the traditional salmon fishing so important to the area, and a mural above the door shows Kettle Falls before it was inundated by the Grand Coulee Dam.
