  • Feels a bit old, but the exhibitions are really focused and they feature some unique regional objects that are not easily seen in other museums.
  • I loved and learned. Fabulous way to spend 5 bucks
  • My son and I went several weeks back, and we both loved it. The facilities on the university campus are always immaculately kept, and full of history. My son loved the Native American exhibits, especially the pottery. Seriously, you're missing out if you don't take advantage of the university's facilities and explore what's around.
  • This is a great museum right on the edge of the UA campus. One section tells you at great length about the growth and demise of the Hohokam and the other part tells of the tribes still active in the Southwest. How they were originally, how outside influences affected them and how they are now. Fascinating!!!!
  • Very good museum! Great collection and well presented. Reasonable price and friendly staff.
