Centrally located on the University of Arizona campus, Arizona State Museum is a treasure trove of the history and culture of the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico. A few steps from the U of A Main Gate at Park Avenue and University Boulevard, the museum has something for everyone of every age.

Our Pottery Project Exhibit is a mere sampling of ASM's 24,000+ whole vessels, the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of Southwest Indian pottery.

Our award-winning Paths of Life Exhibit explores the origins, history, and contemporary lifeways of 10 Native cultures.
