enjoyed the art work and pottery

This is a small musuem of artifacts of the Huhugam triibes people. It is small but very interesting. We just happened on it when driving south of Phoenix.

If you are looking for something to do while at Wild Horse Pass area, check out this little museum. They have some great works of art and history of this native community. They have special events too.

Historic native museum on the Sheraton Wild Horst Pass Resort site. Make sure you turn when you first see the sign or you drive for miles (10-15) before you can turn around

Basking in the sun like two thunderbolts of lightening in the clear blue sky. These slivers of red clay dominated by a ceremonial mound blend the earth with the sky. Clay-colored trimmed vomitorium entranceways surrounded by wired stones seamlessly escort visitors from the parking lot into the amphitheatre of the Grand House and the open air Ball Court used for...

We had no idea about the opening hours so I guess we got lucky. Interesting buildings to look at, if a little confusing - it wasn't too clear where to find the reception (it's the building on the left when you get through the tunnel) Inside was cool both in temperature and also in content. When we were there there... More

A wonderful center. It is only open three days per week. Be sure to watch the entire film about the history of these American Indians. They are truly amazing.

Beautiful building built by the Federal gov't that has virtually no visitors. Not much to see except photos of tribe from years past.

I was born in Phoenix and have always appreciated the Indian Culture. This was an all around look at the Local Indian tribes. Very interesting and informative.

It's pretty far out in the middle of nowhere. It's very small. It's very authentic. It's interesting if you are into anything Native American or Arizona. But that's it. There are some similar places in Scottsdale and Phoenix which don't require a long trip into the desert. But if you happen to pass by on I-10 anyway, you should stop... More

It's worth the stop but very confusing on how to actually get there. But, it was cool inside, a welcome escape from the heat.
