Wow, this museum is great. Tons of one of a kind artifacts. The staff is great and friendly. It's a little spendy but well worth it. If you can only go to one museum go to this one.

More arrowheads than you knew existed including a large Clovis Point! Also, ancient excavated Native artifacts including 14,000 y.o. sandals. A little jewel of a musuem covering Northwest and some Southwest culture. Don't miss it.

WOW! Even after reading the great reviews here, I was still blown away. There must have been at least a thousand different arrowheads. And so much more to see. Native American artifacts from Alaska to Peru. US western artifacts. And art (both old & new) of the above. Expect to take about 2 hours to see everything. Would love it if they offered guided tours. I had so many questions. I will go again if I'm in the area.

Native American Artifacts & Western Art

A visit to the Favell Museum is a must for anyone who loves Native American artifacts, and 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  

HIGHLIGHTS:
• Cougar Mountain Cave artifacts date back nearly 12,000 years. The ancient people who lived near Cougar Mountain Cave witnessed the eruption of Mt. Mazama which created Crater Lake 9,000 years ago.

• Nicolarsen Cave artifacts include the oldest known atlatl with attached boatstone. This hunting tool predated the bow and arrow by several thousand years. It was used to extend the throwing power of the arm.

• Inca Textiles are recognized as the most unique and beautiful weavings known to man. The museum’s textile collection includes the tools used to weave them.

• Pottery exhibited highlight cultural differences. Dating back 1,000 years, collections include Anasazi, Hohokam, Mimbres, Salado, Zuni, and Tonto Basin

• Baskets were the universal storage and carrying tool of ancient man. Represented are examples of Apache, Karok, Pomo, Panamint, Modoc, Klamath and other tribes of the Western United States.

• Clovis Points dating to 13,500 are recognized as the oldest projectile points in North America. Apparently an “American” invention, they are associated with bones of ancient mammoths.

• Miniature Firearms Collection, widely considered to be one of the finest collections shown anywhere, includes Gatling guns, an inch-long Colt 45, and many other working models. 

Today the museum is run by a non-profit foundation.
