About | Collections | Contact | Rights & Reproduction

Founded in 1994, the Deer Valley Rock Art Center has the largest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the Phoenix Valley. Visitors hike a quarter-mile trail to view over 1,500 petroglyphs made between 500 and 7,000 years ago. Voted a Phoenix Point of Pride, Deer Valley Rock Art Center is a destination for families to learn about archaeology in their own backyard. The museum aims to promote preservation, connection and respect for the site.

The Deer Valley Rock Art Center is managed by one of the top archaeology programs in the country - the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University.

The mission of the Deer Valley Rock Art Center is to preserve and provide public access to the Hedgpeth Hills petroglyph site, to interpret the cultural expressions found there, and to be a center for rock art studies worldwide.

The museum is located approximately 2 miles north of Highway 101 and 2 miles west of I-17.
