Although out in the middle of nowhere the museum has an interesting collection of ancient and modern Indian artifacts. The surrounding grounds are pretty as well, with rock formations reminiscent of Prescott AZ. This would be a great place to come for a picnic or maybe a photoshoot.

I am always looking for museums to visit when I travel and the Amerind Museum is a hidden gem. I went on the referral of a friend and was not disappointed. The exhibits are beautifully curated and I love the bilingual signage. There is also an art museum featuring amazing and thought-provoking work from contemporary Native and LGBTQ artists. In addition to being a unique museum and art gallery, the Amerind is surrounded by the gorgeous Southern Arizona desert, providing great photo opportunities and a one-of-a-kind backdrop of a picnic.
