Pueblo Grande is a platform mound site of the Hohokam archaeological culture. It was donated to the City of Phoenix in 1924, and the museum opened in 1929. The museum campus has undergone renovations and additions since its inception.
“A visit today consists of a two-thirds of a mile interpretive trail which travels around the remains of the prehistoric Hohokam people’s ballcourt and platform mound. The trail also features a variety of native plants, walk-in replicated dwellings and an interpretive agricultural garden featuring cotton, corn, beans, squash and amaranth. Inside, view an award-winning introductory video on the Hohokam people and the Pueblo Grande village site. Visit three galleries which explore the Hohokam people and their relationship with the environment, a hands-on gallery that explains the process of archaeology, and the changing exhibit gallery, which features rotating exhibits on a wide-variety of fascinating topics.” — From the website of Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park
