Archaeology is the science that helps us learn about past cultures and their way of life based on the things they left behind. Branigan Cultural Center will be holding the 2017 Archaeology Day on Saturday, March 25, from 10am to 12pm.
Practice tree-ring dating, make your own pinch pot, and learn about hieroglyph code breakers. Archaeology Day provides the museum visitor a chance to discover their inner Indiana Jones! Archaeologists from New Mexico State University, New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum, Blackwater Draw Museum, and the Bureau of Land Management will be available to provide information and answer questions.
Admission to the Branigan Cultural Center is free. The museum is located at 501 North Main Street and is open Tuesday – Friday from 10am to 4:30pm and Saturday, 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: museums.las-cruces.org or call 575.541.2154.
