Amerind Museum Back Room Tour

Note: This post refers to an event that took place on Jul 26, 2014.


Come beat the summer heat by touring the Amerind Museum on Saturday July 26 at 10 am. As part of the trip Director John Ware will give the group a “behind the scenes” tour of the storage vault.

Located in Cochise County one mile south of Interstate 10, the drive there includes stunning views of rolling desert hills and Texas Canyon’s peculiar walls of naturally stacked granitic boulders. The facility is prized not only for the antiquity and significance of what is held inside but also for its architectural merit. Constructed in the 1930s in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, the buildings of the Amerind are a testament to Arizona’s heritage resources and another sight to see on your visit.

The tour is open to 20 people. We will arrange carpooling from Tucson. A boxed lunch will be provided by the museum at an additional cost ($12) cost and there is a $5.00 admission fee to the museum.

For additional questions or if you’d like to register please contact Leslie Aragon.
