I’ve been going to the museum where I now work since I was a very little boy. Downstairs there is a room with shelves in front of the windows. The shelves have always had various artifacts on them. They change from time to time. I’ve always wondered what was in that room. You can catch glimpses as you try and spy through the windows. I finally got the chance to go inside. Not an important lifelong dream, but a lifelong dream fulfilled.

The room is one of the artifact vaults. It’s just what you would expect with literally thousands of artifacts of every kind. This vault is the archeology vault so the objects relate to the several native tribal people who have called Arizona home for a very long time. Baskets, pottery, weapons, tools. It was all very cool to get to see, and actually touch.
