The Sierra Mono Museum is home to the largest displays of Mono Indian basketry in California. Inside the Museum there are many artifacts and baskets on display donated and on loan by members of the Mono Tribe. Other collections on exhibit include weapons, traditional games, ceremonial items, tools, and beautiful beaded crafts. Also on display is the Tettelton Wildlife Collection including dioramas and over 100 freestanding taxidermy animals from Northern America, Asia, and South America.
The museum receives no federal, state or city funds for general operating expenses. It is supported by membership fees, donations, gift store sales, and grant funds. The Sierra Mono Museum has been a private, non profit 501(c)3 institution governed by a Board of Directors since May 9, 1966. Visiting the museum offers a glimpse at Mono Indian lifestyles of yesterday and today.
