Southwest History Museum

I have been to this museum several times. My five your old is a dinosaur lover. He absolutely loves this museum. I think he thinks it was made for him. This museum brings out the dinosaur lover in us all.

The Arizona Museum of Natural History is your place for dinosaurs that roar and much more. The valley’s only natural history museum has the best dinosaurs in town, a history courtyard where visitors pan for gold, a native peoples’ gallery includes a replica village and pottery. Where else can you enjoy a cool indoor waterfall? Three changing exhibition galleries offer a variety of interesting subjects.
Hohokam! Ancient Monuments of the Salt River Valley, opened on October 6.
Feathered Dinosaurs opened March 1.
You don't need to travel to Egypt to see temple mounds- the Salt River Valley was home to the Hohokam, who built ancient temples and vast networks of enormous irrigation canals that lie beneath our homes and streets. Come see archaeological material never seen and presented before!
