IMPORTANT NOTE: The museum will be closed for most of the week of October 21-27. We simply don't have the staff for that week due to conferences and events around campus.

Again, please call before making any plans regarding the museum, and remember that the site is always closed during the week this time of year.
All: we are excited to announce that we have begun planning in earnest for our 18th Annual Atlatl Competition! This year's date will be October 27th, the last Saturday of the month as has been our tradition in years past. We will have our competition, as well as our special Director's Tour, so make sure to mark your calednars. Please keep an eye out for our new flyer, as well as more information in the coming days... and as always, share widely! #opentothepublic #clovis #atla
