Amerind Museum Back and Front Room Tour
September can be hot in Southern Arizona, why not join us for a guided tour of the acclaimed Amerind Museum (http://www.amerind.org/index.html) on Saturday, September 16 at 10 am. Executive Director Christine Szuter and Curator/Deputy Director Eric Kaldahl have graciously offered us small group tours of the back room and larger group tours of the “front-of-the-house.” Dr. Kaldahl will lead tours of six participants through 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 spectacular 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 1930’s 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 18 people. The drive is a little over an hour from Tucson and, if there is interest, we will arrange a car pool meeting place before departing for the tour. Participants will be asked to bring their own lunches and there is a very nice picnic area on the grounds surrounded by the Texas Canyon boulders. There will be an $8.00 per person group-tour entrance fee charged at the door.
