Top 10 Western Museums of 2011

8. Pueblo Grande Museum (Phoenix, Arizona)

An archaeological site museum and repository brings an ancient Hohokam village to contemporary Phoenix. Archaeology programs for children, petroglyph hikes, lectures and workshops, plus a food and craft fair, and Navajo rug and art auction, deliver something for everyone. Summer programs (“Hohokam Experience Summer” for future archaeologists ages 7 to 12; storytelling for ages 3 to 5) make the perfect summer break for children, and their parents.
