  • The sad part is that we could not take pictures. We forget after a while and don't remember much. They had lots of archaeological research to find it all. I was able to take a wooden door with my...  more »

  • Although out in the middle of nowhere the museum has an interesting collection of ancient and modern Indian artifacts. The surrounding grounds are pretty as well, with rock formations reminiscent of Prescott AZ. This would be a great place to come for a picnic or maybe a photoshoot. It's also 5-10 degrees cooler than Tucson which is a nice bonus.
  • I am always looking for museums to visit when I travel and the Amerind Museum is a hidden gem. I went on the referral of a friend and was not disappointed. The exhibits are beautifully curated and I love the bilingual signage. There is also an art museum featuring amazing and thought-provoking work from contemporary Native and LGBTQ artists. In addition to being a unique museum and art gallery, the Amerind is surrounded by the gorgeous Southern Arizona desert, providing great photo opportunities and a one-of-a-kind backdrop of a picnic.
  • Went to the art museum 1st then the Native American museum. Both were great but, recommend doing it the other way. By the time I got to the 2nd place, was tired of reading. I will return
  • Beautiful setting out in the desert, an old building built originally to be a museum. The exhibits showcase the Native American people of the area, and geographic features. A picnic area that's open for the public is quiet, on the outskirts of the main building. This place is worth driving to just to see the landscape, and beyond that a day could be spent viewing the many interesting exhibits.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit, enjoyed the Indian artifacts. Very well done. A got to go see!!
