Maxwell Museum of Anthropology
With more than 10 million curated items, this museum, on the University of New Mexico Campus, offers one of the most complete records of human history and culture. The museum houses two permanent exhibits. "Ancestors" showcases the four million year history of the evolution of humankind. "People of the Southwest" is an in-depth record of 11,000 years of Southwestern culture. Other dynamic exhibits and a lecture series offer interpretations of man's history across the globe.
This is a very nice museum on the UNM campus. It's also free (donation box). It has a full-size diorama of a cliff dwelling, models of various extinct people, corn the kids can smash on grinding stones, and about 100 other things. It's a nice walk across the campus to get there, and I think there is some parking about 100 feet to the west. It's well worth 1 or 2 hours.
