Archaeological repository project records dominate the Museum’s archival collections and include field notes, logs, sketches, maps, and analysis data. The archival collection also contains documents about the Museum’s ethnographic holdings, as well as records related to the Museum’s institutional and administrative history.

The photographic archives contain over 65,000 images. Most of the photographs document professional archaeological excavations within the City of Phoenix. The Museum also has collections of photographs documenting the history of the Museum as well as ethnographic images of Native American people from the Southwest.​​​
