Picnicking, birdwatching, nature trail available on the grounds.

This Museum continues to amaze me with the uniqueness of their collection. I first saw NW coppers here and still have not seen them in any other collection. This is a must see when you are in the area.

We were pleasantly surprised at the extent of the exhibits at this museum. We have visited many similar museums throughout the Southwest but found this one exceptionally extensive with displays and descriptons ranging from the Ice Age to the present. The stand-alone exhibits in the center of the rooms were also exceptionally displayed and described. There were also many items... More

I encourage you to visit their website, click on ABOUT US, then on PHOTO AND VIDEO GALLERY. You'll find a wonderful 6-minute video about the history of the foundation that will greatly enhance your visit. To get here, you drive into the Texas Canyon which is fascinating and otherworldly - the rock shapes will amaze you! The museum itself showcases... More

The Amerindian Museum and the Gallery next door were the highlight of our short trip out of Tucson. It is an easy drive from Tucson, either there and back in a day, or part of a two day trip taking in Douglas, Bisbee and Tombstone as well. The staff were very friendly and well-informed and the exhibits were exceptional, showing... More

This is a Native American museum unlike any other I have seen. There is a great anthropology exhibit extending chronologically around the walls of a great room, starting with the migration of the first Native Americans across the Bering Strait to inhospitable Alaska and spreading South. The division of these people geographically and linguistically is explained accompanied by artifacts. The... More

The Amerind Museum (American Indian) is a wonderful museum to visit. The admission for adults is $10.00. Seniors $9.00. Active military free. The price includes the Art Gallery next door and the new exhibits in there are fantastic! Very colorful. One of the artists is Dwayne Manuel (O'odham) Portraits of The Salt River Basket Weavers.

The founders were interested in the culture of this countries residences before the country was settled. They found and collected an amazing amount of items from both South and North America and in a great display. Please take the time to stop, visit and enjoy the wonderful setting and collection
