The Blackwater Draw Museum (BWDM) curates archaeological materials from various sources. Most notably are the materials recovered directly from the Blackwater Draw National Landmark. BWDM also curates materials for various federal agencies (e.g. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management), field schools, and Cultural Resource Management.
BWDM also curates materials from private collections, most notably the Fred Miles and Calvin Smith collections.
Collections care is on-going in all aspects of the museum and repository to increase documentation and access.
