Looking for an usual place to take your mother for her big day in May? Think about a pre- or post-brunch visit to Arizona State University’s Deer Valley Rock Art Center.

On Mother’s Day, May 9, Deer Valley Rock Art Center will offer a two-for-one admission for mothers. Pay one regular admission ($7 adults, $4 seniors, $3 children) from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and your mom's ticket is free.

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center, located at 3711 W. Deer Valley Road, has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a quarter-mile trail to view more than 1,500 petroglyphs made between 800 and 5,000 years ago.

The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site and is are a destination for families to learn about archaeology in their own backyard.

The center is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country at Arizona State University and is a Phoenix Point of Pride.
