Pueblo Grande Museum Launches Digital Exhibit for 90th Anniversary

City of Phoenix

In 2019, Pueblo Grande Museum celebrated its 90th anniversary and created a three-location exhibit, showcased at Phoenix Airport Museum, The Gallery @City Hall, and Pueblo Grande Museum.

Like many archaeological museums of the early 20th century, Pueblo Grande Museum was established by archaeologists and enthusiasts who excavated, researched, and preserved Native American cultures as curiosities. Though the perspectives of the time now seem antiquated, the early work at Pueblo Gr​ande laid a foundation on which to build.

The location of the Museum within an archaeological site encourages partnerships between the City of Phoenix, archaeologists, and Native communities. We work together to tell the stories of Ancestral Sonoran Desert People in informative and compelling ways. Voted a Phoenix Point of Pride and listed as a National Historic Landmark, the Museum promotes preservation, education, and collaborative interpretation of the cultural history of the Phoenix area.
