Archaeological Collections Access Announcement


The ARC staff has completed moving the bulk archaeological material, the type sherds, and the comparative collections from the Mera Room at the Laboratory of Anthropology to the Center for New Mexico Archaeology, off Caja del Rio Road, west of Santa Fe.

All of the archaeological collections are now open to research and loans.  We regret we cannot accommodate WALK-INS—an appointment is required. 

You may make an appointment to visit the collections by contacting the Curator of Archaeological Research Collections, Diana Sherman, 505.476.4443,

Loan requests should be made in writing to the Curator, either by email or a letter mailed to Diana Sherman; Museum of Indian Arts & Culture;  P.O. Box 2087; Santa Fe, NM 87504.
