Overview

A visit to the Favell Museum is a must for anyone who loves Native American artifacts, and Contemporary Western art.Over 100,000 artifacts, illustrating the lives of indigenous tribes from North and South America are on display, with the primary focus on Native American tribes. Collections dating from 12,000 years ago include thousands of arrowheads, obsidian knives, spear points, primitive ancient stone tools, native clothing, intricate bead work, basketry, pottery and more. The collections on display give the visitor a suggestion of the richness and variety of societies no longer here and they illustrate how creative and adaptive the native people were. The artifacts give you a feel for what it must have been like for the early Native Americans to survive and thrive in southern Oregon, on the Columbia River and up and down the west coast of North and South America. Cultures from the mid-west to the Pacific and from Peru to Alaska are represented.

I’m always surprised by how cool this museum is. As an adult the art is lovely to gaze at but the Native American collections in the back of the museum is a hit for the younger crowd. Has a really cool gun safe/ gun exhibit.

The current exhibit of Native American women's photographs is a national treasure. The standing exhibits fascinated the young boys, especially the working miniature guns.
