Museum of Native American ARtifacts Images

These images are from the Museum Of  Native American Artifacts in Bentonville, Ark.  The Museum is owned by Mr. David Bogle and is provided to the public free of charge.  The Museum has currently relocated to new and larger facilities and will be open to the public again shortly.  If you ever get the opportunity to visit the museum and view the relics in person, you should. This is only a small sampling of  the artifacts in the museum, but it gives you an idea.

 There are some of the better known relics for public display in the museum.   Some of these relics are on loan from caring individuals and institutions.  The opportunity to show them to the public is exciting and greatly appreciated.  While some of these artifacts are well known, others have not been available for public viewing previously.  Enjoy!  Please do not take any of the images without the proper consent.  Thanks!!!! - Matt
