Our Museum Store within the Museum is temporarily closed, however, our on our online Museum Store, you will find a wide array of distinctive and unique items ranging from exclusive VVAC logo apparel to local Native American arts and crafts. In addition, featured in our Museum Store is one of the finest selection of books on a wide variety of archaeology, Southwest and local historical topics that can be found in the Verde Valley.
We also have a nice selection of Mata Ortiz pottery that is based on the archaeologically important ruins of nearby Paquime (or Casas Grandes). Mata Ortiz pottery, or Casas Grandes , is one of the finest and most innovative ceramics in the world. With an olla as their canvas, the potters of Mata Ortiz have imprinted in them not only re-creations of ancestral symbols, but they have searched within their own spirit and creativity and have been able to conceive a unique artistic language, creative and original. They have gone through the imitation of pre-Hispanic ceramics, and have moved on to a sophisticated creation of contemporary art.
