Arizona Museum of Natural History Trip
The next VVAC Exploration tour will be on August 14 to the Arizona Museum of Natural History. The Arizona Museum of Natural History presents the hall of Mesoamerican cultures because there are links between the high cultures of Mexico and Central America and the ancient Native American civilizations of the Southwest, particularly the Hohokam. Included is a reproduction by noted Arizona artist Zarco Guerrero of an Olmec (1400-400 B.C ) colossal head. The colossal heads, carved from single boulders, stood between 1.6 and 2.4 meters high. Cost: $95 per person. Reservations must be made by August 1.
We travel via air-conditioned mini-bus with two rows of two with an isle down the middle; all seats are high-back bucket reclining seats. Lunch is on your own but we will make reservations at a nearby restaurant before the return trip. Cost: $95 per person. Register HERE.
