Visit Archeology

Planning a trip? Looking for something to do? Consider using one of our archeology travel guides to get on your way. Archeology is everywhere, and chances are good that archeologists can help you to look at an old place in a new way.

Archeology has something for everyone—every age group, interest, and attention span! Throughout the United States, many museums, historical societies, national and regional parks, and local sites offer a wide range of activities. Be sure also to check out Events in Your State for local events, Volunteer Opportunities, and more on the For the Public page.

Most archeological sites open for public visitation are managed by local, state, tribal, and federal agencies. These agencies are required to preserve and protect the sites so that you, your kids, and your grandkids can enjoy them. So, when you visit sites, it is a good idea to check out the House Rules - like, don't climb on the ruins and don't pick up anything! If you want to learn more, check out our Archeology Law for the Public webpage.
