"A Nice Little Museum"

Part archaeological site, part museum, and repository, the Pueblo Grande Museum is located next to the 1,500 year old ruins of a Hohokam Village.  The Hohokam were the Native America culture centered around what is now Arizona. Explore a platform mound, irrigation canals, an excavated ballcourt, and reproductions of Hohokam homes.

Inside explore three galleries --- the main one displays all sorts of artifacts of the Hohokam and provides visitors with details about the Pueblo Grande archaeological site.  There is also a hands-on gallery with activities to help kids learn more about archaeology.  My kids, big fans of hands on activities, had a great time working their way through this gallery. The third gallery changes but during the times of our visit had a beautiful photo exhibition of desert life.

All-in-all, this museum provided us with a really nice and simple look at prehistoric life in Arizona.
