"Let’s Take a Look"
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
MIAC Cutaors Examine Your Treasures

During this time, curators from The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and The Laboratory of Anthropology are in the lobby of MIAC to look at your treasures. These curators will attempt to identify and explain any artifact or historic object presented to them. They prefer to work with objects from the Southwest but are willing to take a look at anything that is brought in. If they can not identify an object an attempt will be made to find someone who can. Sometimes, the discussion among the curators may become as much or more informative than the identification of the artifact.

Curators cannot appraise any items but can refer you to resources that will.
