AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Devoted to understanding the way human culture melds with the Arizona desert, this fine facility is both an anthropological and natural history center. Notable exhibits include the world’s largest collection of Southwest Native pottery; a marvelous exhibit of folklore masks from northern Mexico; and a haunting collection of photographs depicting pre-Columbian architecture around the Southwest. Housed in a distinctly non-Sonoran brick building on the far west of the university campus, the museum’s centerpiece is a large exhibit, “Paths of Life,” depicting the lifestyles of 10 indigenous peoples of the Southwest, from the local Tohono O’odham to Yaqui, Apache and Hopi.
