Pueblo Grande Museum: Preserved Hohokam Site

The Pueblo Grande Museum site, originally built and occupied by the ancient Hohokam people between A.D.100 and 1450, and owned by the City of Phoenix since 1924, is the largest preserved archeological site in the Valley.

This museum offers a wide variety of family-friendly activities to entertain and educate visitors about these most amazing Valley farmers.

The northwest corner of the current museum’s acreage was actually home of the first Phoenix Zoo, owned and operated in 1942 by E.A. Tovrea. Mr. Tovrea is better known for his unique home, Tovrea Castle (another destination worthy of a spring visit).
