Visitors of all ages can learn about New Mexico’s unique 12,000-year cultural heritage through hands-on activities, demonstrations and interactions with archaeologists. Throw atlatls, shoot bows, make yucca fiber, learn about rock art and query archaeologists with your questions about New Mexico archaeology.

The Office of Archaeological Studies, in collaboration with the Santa Fe Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America and other organizations in northern New Mexico, will host an open house at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road, Santa Fe, NM 87507) on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the building, which is the primary storage facility for New Mexico’s archaeological collections, as well as the offices and working research laboratories of the Office of Archaeological Studies.
