Eiteljorg Museum


This adobe museum features Native American basketry, pots and masks, as well as a realistic/romantic Western painting collection with works by Frederic Remington, Georgia O'Keeffe and an absolutely eye-popping Grand Canyon series (Wilson Hurley's October Suite).

The museum validates the $8 parking free, so feel free to head into the underground garage.
