S’edav Va’aki Museum is located on an extraordinary archaeological site where visitors learn about the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People, known to archaeologists as the Hohokam. Visitors can walk along a 2/3-mile outdoor trail exploring a prehistoric Va’aki (platform mound), a ballcourt, full-size replica houses, and a demonstration garden. Indoors enjoy two permanent and two changing exhibit galleries exploring archaeology, the awe-inspiring artifacts of the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People, and contemporary indigenous themes.
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.
Throughout the year, S’edav Va’aki Museum has programming for adults, children, and families, which include classes for kids, arts and crafts workshops, and lectures. The Museum also holds annual events, such as the Indian Market, children’s summer programs, Ancient Technology Day and more to please all ages and interests!
