Today you will hear a story of discovery. A story of
an incredible collection of ancient artifacts that date back as far
as 10,000 years ago; These artifacts were discovered by our business
consultants, Inland Entertainment Corporation. After purchasing the
collection, Inland donated the entire collection to
the people of Barona. With over 2,000 priceless artifacts, it is a
collection that has now come home,
to be preserved forever in this beautiful new Barona museum.
The museum will feature artifacts, scientific interactive displays,
dioramas and also serve as an important Native American history resource.
