Designed to resemble an Indian pueblo, the Smoki Museum was built in 1935 of native stone and wood. It was constructed with labor provided by the Civilian Works Administration and the Smoki People.
The Museum’s art collection includes oil and watercolor paintings, charcoal drawings and hundreds of Hopi photographs by Kate Cory. Ms. Cory decorated the Museum walls with several incredible kachina paintings. The Smoki Museum library contains some 600 volumes, mostly on Native American prehistory and ethnography. In the library, you will find periodicals from Museum News and Pottery Southwest, among others.
