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.
Among the ancient artifacts, you will find original paintings by many famous western artists, including the original oil “The Scouts” by Charles M. Russell. You will also find original paintings by John Clymer, Frank McCarthy and many more, who tell in their own artistic style, the story of the west.

A real treasure. The Favell Museum is a wonderful, classy, small museum of Native American Artifacts and Western Art. The collections are remarkable, indeed. A 12,000- year-old Clovis Point; one of the largest arrowhead collections in the world, including a small, but “oh my!” fire opal point; a mind boggling beaded Sioux cradleboard; a significant collection of working miniature guns; and on and on.
