Maxwell Museum of Anthropology, 500 University Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87106, USA

Current Exhibits
Mass shootings involving guns have become a fact of American culture. While mass murders happened throughout recorded history, changing civilian gun technology has made the murders more deadly. American museums, particularly those that portrayed Western expansion, created exhibitions that glamorized firearms, Such exhibitions celebrated a gun-slinging American frontier, based in part on historical events, in part on popular legends, and, in part on outright fiction.
