Beginning as a 3,000-square-foot room full of Arizona artifacts, the Mesa Southwest Museum is now an 80,000-square-foot facility featuring exhibits representing southwestern natural and cultural history.
The museum is now recognized as one of the largest "dinosaur" museums in the Southwest. Visitors to the Mesa Southwest Museum experience an incredible journey through Prehistoric Arizona that begins with the formation of the solar system itself. Other attractions include the awe-inspiring three-story Dinosaur Mountain, Dinosaur Hall, Discovery Resource Center, Native Peoples gallery, Art of the Ancient Americas, a Spanish mission replica, Territorial Jail Cells, Arizona and the Movies, turn-of-the-century Mesa, the Arizona Highways Magazine gallery and more.
Two changing galleries-Galeria Baja and Galeria Alta-provide the venue for blockbuster changing exhibits from around the world.

This distinctive Queen Anne style home was deeded to the City of Mesa in 1980 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Mesa Grande ruins consist of an ancient Hohokam platform mound that was utilized around AD 1000-1400.
