Arizona Museum of Natural History
Tyrannosaurus Bataar located in Dinosaur Hall.
The Arizona Museum of Natural History is the only natural history museum in the greater Phoenix area. It exhibits the natural and cultural history of the Southwestern United States. The Museum's exhibitions include a three-story indoor waterfall on Dinosaur Mountain, Dinosaur Hall, a real territorial jail, and a recreation of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine. The Southwest Gallery consists of a native peoples’ gallery, with exhibits about Paleoindian big game hunters and gatherers, the first inhabitants of North America, and the Desert Cultures that developed later. It also holds a recreation of a Hohokam village, with pithouses and above-ground structures, outfitted with real artifacts as they might have been from about A.D. 600-1450.
