Museum of Indian Arts and Culture


Situated on a hillside off the Old Santa Fe Trail, the museum showcases timeless examples of textiles, basketry, pottery, and jewelry from Native American tribes of the Southwest. This vast collection of Indian art and everyday objects is presented in informative exhibits about the traditions, ceremonies, and everyday lives of Native Americans with an emphasis on the Pueblo, Navajo, and Apache peoples. Adjacent to the museum is the Laboratory of Anthropology which was founded in 1927 as a research center and whose library and archives are open to the public every weekday. Many exhibitions in the museum feature selections from the Laboratory's extensive collection. In 1997 the 21,000 square foot wing housing the permanent exhibit "Here, Now and Always," about first person Native history, opened. There has also been an expansion of the Living Traditions Education Center.
