The PAM Collection

PlayaMakers is excited to bring the Playa Artifacts Museum (PAM) to the archive!
Curator Tod (TBone) Johnson of PAM has been collecting since 2007 and in 2019 brought his Playa Artifacts Museum to Black Rock City.
We have been collaborating together over the last year to bring his collection online to PlayaMakers. This is the first release of 700 artifacts from his collection and we will be adding hundreds more in the future!

Come explore the new addition of Playa Artifacts Museum Collection.
