  • Amerind Foundation Museum, Dragoon - Arizona
 

Dragoon is the home of the Amerind Foundation a non-profit anthropological and archaeological research center with an impressive assortment of exhibits about Native American Culture. The foundation was established in 1937, and dedicates itself to research and education about all native cultures. In keeping with the location, the main emphasis is on the Indian Tribes in the Souteast; but they have displays of cultures from the Arctic to the tip of South America running from pre-history to today. They also have an art museum on site. The site around the goundation is pretty and relaxing. Entrance to both museums is $5 for adults; $4 for seniors; $3 for children 12 to 18; and free for children under 12. Hours are 10 AM to 4 PM Tuesday through Sunday year round. The foundation is closed Mondays and all Major Holidays.

Photography is not allowed inside either museum. The main museum has a gift shop where you can buy a neat screensaver with photos of 38 of the best museum pieces. Worth a visit.
