What a good grasp of the Southwest this museum has. Here you will be treated to plenty of artifacts and you will learn interesting facts about the early settlers in this area and about the Indians. Plan to spend at least 3 hours.

I was impressed by this museum. It had a large collection of local Native American art, including pottery and clothes. I also liked the huge Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit. However, maybe it was just me, but I got lost on the second floor....More
