This is the tower at the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. It is the oldest museum in Los Angeles and houses one of the finest collections of Native American artifacts in existence. Galleries here feature the Native American people from the Plains, Southwest, California, and the Northwest coast. Unfortunately the museum is closed for restoration and is due to open in 2013. This was one of my favorite places to visit. I hope to visit again in 2013.
Outside the museum, there is a Spanish cannon in the lower left. And downtown Los Angeles on the horizon.
Mortar stone and metate in the garden area.
One of the many dioramas at the museum.
