Pueblo Grande Museum is an archaeological site left by the Hohokam culture, just east of downtown Phoenix, next to Sky Harbor International Airport. It's a National Historic Landmark and Phoenix Point of Pride accessible by the Sky Train and the Light Rail. Part of the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department since 1929, it's the largest preserved archaeological site in Phoenix.

A fully accessible 2/3 mile trail takes you through a prehistoric Hohokam archaeological site with a platform mound, ball court, and replicated houses. Three galleries display artifacts and information on the Hohokam and village site and a hands-on children's gallery. Purchase Native American gifts, art and jewelry at the Museum Store.

Open 7 days a week Oct.-Apr.; Closed Sundays & Mondays May-Sept.
