At Pueblo Grande Museum explore a 1,500 year old archaeological site of the ancestral Sonoran Desert people (Hohokam) located just minutes from downtown Phoenix next to Sky Harbor International Airport.  This National Historic Landmark and Phoenix Point of Pride has been a part of the City of Phoenix since 1929, and is the largest preserved archaeological site within Phoenix.  Easily accessible by the Sky Train and the Light Rail, the museum is open 7 days a week October through April, and closed Sundays and Mondays, May through September.

A fully accessible 2/3 mile trail takes you through a prehistoric archaeological village site with a partially excavated platform mound, ballcourt, and replicated prehistoric houses.  There are three galleries to visit.  The main gallery displays artifacts of the ancestral Sonoran Desert people and discusses the Pueblo Grande village site.  The children’s gallery has activities to help kids learn about the science of archaeology.  The changing gallery features exhibits on topics related to archaeology, southwest cultures, and Arizona history.  For authentic Native American gifts, art, and jewelry, the Museum Store has something for all tastes and budgets.

Throughout the year, Pueblo Grande Museum has programming for adults, children, and families, which include archaeology classes for kids, arts and crafts workshops, hikes, and lectures.  The Museum also holds annual events, such as the Indian Market, children’s summer programs, a Native Art & Rug Auction, Ancient Technology Day and more to please all ages and interests!
