Where are we going today?

Arizona is an AMAZING state, as are all the cultures that have been part of it, and still are! So why not take the family to a place that celebrates these cultures, as well as the entire Southwest and northern Mexico - the Arizona State Museum!

Located on the campus of the University of Arizona, this fascinating museum has a number of exhibits which cover a whole range of topics - great for education!

You can explore the famous Navajo pottery (there are over 20,000 vessels in the museum!), and celebrates 2,000 years of these pottery-making traditions.

Explore the exhibit of the American Indians of the Southwest, where there are artifacts which even date back to the prehistoric period! There are life-sized dioramas, as well as audio/video presentations that will all contribute to your already amazing experience! There are even tours that you can take which can give you even more information. 

What's also great about the Arizona State Museum, is that there are often events that you can join in on, which will really give you a deeper understanding of some of their topics. Maybe you want to check out the Southwest Indian Art Fair, or explore the Hands-On Discovery Carts?

The Arizona State Museum also offers tours which are free with a paid admission. They start at 1pm, and the informative docents can answer any questions that you might have!

Spend some time celebrating an amazing part of the country at the Arizona State Museum! You might just be amazed at what you learn!

    Well balbir525 a museum is almost never gonna be free. You've gotta pay something for them to stay on business. You must be one of those people who expects everything for free or in other words "something for nothing".

    I've loved going to this museum so much over the years and the library upstairs. The best gallery is in the NW corner ... it took me 4 times to the museum before I found this little gem. Free, fun, & educational. Oooo there is a fun turtle park a block north worth checking out.
