In the community of St. Michaels, 4 miles west of Window Rock, this museum chronicles the lives and influence of Franciscan friars who started a mission in this area in the 1670s. The museum is in a small building adjacent to the impressive stone mission church. Back in the early years of the 20th century, a friar here photographed the Navajos of the area, and the chance to see some of these historical photos is one of the best reasons to visit this museum. The Navajo Nation Tourism Department just across the street is a good source of information.
