Arizona State Museum, Tucson

Arizona State Museum, Tucson (must see)

The Arizona State Museum (ASM), founded in 1893, was originally a repository for the collection and protection of archaeological resources. Today, however, ASM stores artifacts, exhibits them and provides education and research opportunities. It was formed by the authority of the Territorial Legislature. The Museum is operated by the University of Arizona, and is located in Tucson. ASM holds artifacts created by cultures from the past as well as present cultures. The types of artifacts include pottery, jewelry, baskets, textiles and clothing. Archaeological objects were unearthed during excavations by museum staff and others. Ethnological items (those not acquired from excavation) have been donated by Native American tribes, acquired from individuals, as well as purchased by ASM.
