The Deer Valley Rock Art Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a π-mile trail to view over 1,500 petroglyphs made between 800 and 5,000 years ago. The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site and we 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. The Center is part of the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, a unit of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  It is located at 3711 W. Deer Valley Road, two blocks west of 35th Avenue.
