Arts & Museums
Altermann Galleries & Auctioneers, established in 1978, specializes in American Western art.
Located off Interstate 10 about an hour east of Tucson between Benson and Willcox in the beautiful Dragoon Mountains, The Amerind Foundation is one of the best places in the West to learn about American Indian archeology, arts and culture. It also serves as a research institute for the study of indigenous culture, with a large library and archive section. Interpretive Exhibits of archaeological finds display the entire range of Native art from Anasazi pottery to Navajo rugs. Credits cards are accepted at the museum store only. Picnic grounds are on site.
About two hours north of Tucson in the Western town of Globe, there is one of the most fascinating places for learning about an ancient tribe that inhabited this part of the country more than 700 years ago. The Besh Ba Gowah (meaning "place of metal") site, home of the Salado people from about 1240 to 1400 A.D., is considered a prehistoric center of trade for farmers. There are interpretive trails, a museum showcasing artifacts and site models.
