Cabot's Pueblo Museum
Massive, unusual, impressive and somewhat disturbing all at the same time, this museum is the result of one man's passionate interest in the Hopi Indians. Driven to recreate a Hopi Pueblo, Cabot Yerxa worked on this structure for 24 years until his death in 1965. The 35-room adobe and wood structure contains some of Yerxa's extensive collections from his world travels. See their website for further information. Guided Tours: Adults $6, seniors $5, students and soldiers $4, children under 6 free.
I highly recommend checking out this quirky place - the staff obviously tend it lovingly, and their appreciation is contagious. What did Cabot Yerxa actually do? Nothing - just lived an interesting life, built this interesting homestead, filled it with the things that he loved, and lived in it with gusto. To get a glimpse into the man's life, and into the people who guard his legacy and guide the rest of us into it is an afternoon well spent. For the discriminating traveler.
I still have the fondest memories of my life
living at the Pueblo Museum. We; that is myself, one brother, mother and father did live right on the premises. My father was the main attraction and still is shown on some of the older post cards. I remember sitting on the ledge of an upper window daydreaming of my future. Now eventhough my life travels has taken far from my beloved childhood home, I offten daydream of my past. It is a dream inspiring place with a facination of not being quite sure of where or what will be next. To the present staff and owners as well as any who visit or have visited. Sweet travels to you, and be sure not to miss one of the wonders of a dream, dreamed by a man who has shared it all with us. Lucy Randall
we visited on 1/27/2007. our guide was the best! her sincere respect and admiration of cabot yerxa and the life he led was contagious. she was enthusiastic, entertaining, open to questions, and very knowledgable. going on a tour of Cabot's pueblo is a great way to spend the afternoon. btw- there is no on-site artisans like the website says. they are going thru some administrative changes right now.
