Pueblo Grande Museum is located on a 1,500 year old archaeological site once inhabited by the Hohokam culture 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 Parks and Recreation Department since 1929, and is the largest preserved archaeological site within Phoenix. There is on-site parking available and the site is 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 on a self-guided tour through a prehistoric Hohokam archaeological village site with a partially excavated platform mound, ballcourt, and replicated prehistoric houses. There are three galleries to visit while at the Museum. The main gallery displays artifacts of the Hohokam and discusses the Pueblo Grande village site. The children’s hands-on gallery has activities to help kids learn about the science of archaeology. And the changing gallery features exhibits on various topics from 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 and events for adults, children, and families. Reservations are not required for admission; groups of 10 or larger call prior to visit to obtain savings on admission.
