Favell Museum Visit in Klamath Falls
A huge collection of arrowheads and other Native American artifacts such as baskets and warrior garb. More arrowheads than you have ever seen and many Indian tools and weapons. No photos allowed in the exhibit/ The one uploaded is from a display at the city visitor center about a block away. Disturbing to see how the original people of this country lived, and their entire culture wiped out and disrupted by white European settlers. How they were chased and pushed out of their native lands. Their fishing in the West was totally ruined by all the dams put up on the rivers. Very sad. A young man at the door was masked and gave us a verbal description of what we would see and what direction to walk the exhibit. It was annoying that a female employee, who seemed to be a manager, kept popping in and out with the masked young man, but not wearing one herself! Unacceptable since masks are mandated now.
Spent an enjoyable time visiting this Native American museum. We were luck to be there when they were are also having an art display of local artists. Lots of arrowheads from different areas and tribes plus lots more! Informative and well done display of Mr Favell’s lifetime collection. Entrance fee was just $10 each. Good museum in the Klamath Falls area. Not open every day so check days and times. We were there on Tuesday morning.
High class museum and gift shop
The quality of the art and artifacts here is unsurpassed. Really a beautiful experience and you learn so much about the west and Indian life. Top notch gift shop with exquisite handmade jewelry and leatherwork.
Good displays of American Indian artifacts
This was a slightly rushed museum visit as we had less than a hour to see everything due to closing time. However, we felt we had enough time to see the amazing displays of arrow heads, art work and various other pieces of American Indian items on display there. This was an excellent museum if one is interested in American Indian history and artwork. Very nice! It was interesting to read about Mr. Favell and how he collected all of the items and then got the museum started. No photos were allowed which was too bad as there were some beautiful arrangements of arrowheads that I would have loved to have pics of to remember.
We visited this museum and it has the most wonderful collection of artifacts from the surrounding areas and gives you a very good picture of life as it was over the decades. The young man at the front desk was knowledgeable and helpful and the design of the museum and displays excellent. They also have quality craft goods for sale. Well worth a visit.
