Stories of mythical beings have been with us for thousands of years passed down through generations. These legends, which were sometimes inspired by fossils or living animals, continue to inspire us today.

    I need educating. What on earth do pin ball machines have to do with indigenous culture and history? Yes, I saw them. And what on earth do unicorns and dragons have to do with indigenous culture? I would be more interested in legends like vision quests, masked societies, tricksters, raven, medicine men, rituals performed for cleansing or for transition from child to adult, taboos, role of women in their matrilineal societies, ceremonial dances and the like. I was thoroughly disappointed with this museum when I visited it.
