The Amerind Museum is an internationally acclaimed Museum and research facility located between Benson and Willcox. The museum boasts an impressive collection of Native American artifacts as well as paintings by western artists. Nestled in Texas Canyon, the old Spanish Revival Museum is home to one of the world’s finest collections of Indian artifacts. Founded by archaeologist William Shirley Fulton in 1937, the Amerind was named such in a concatenation of the words, American and Indian, thus Amerind. If you come from Tucson, it is remote but definitely worth the hike. For additional information on Groups, Events, Research facility and Art Gallery, please see the official website at Amerind.org.
