    What to Expect
    Visit: Museum of Northern Arizona, 3101 N Fort Valley Rd, Flagstaff, AZ 86001-8348

    This museum will inspire a sense of love and responsibility for the beauty and diversity of the Colorado Plateau through collecting, studying, interpreting, and preserving the region’s natural and cultural heritage. Taste the culture by visiting the exhibitions, both permanent and dynamic displays.

    Get a taste of the lives of the Hopi in the Kiva Gallery through contemporary Hopi arts including pottery, basketry, weavings, and katsinas offering insight into the lives of the Hopi and their cultural traditions. The gallery includes a re-created subterranean space like a kiva, complete with a 5 x 48 foot mural entitled Journey of the Human Spirit, painted by artists Michael Kabotie and Delbridge Honanie. The work depicts the artists' individual and cultural explorations of a sophisticated artistic history, from ancient stories of emergence to traditional life.

    Pop over to the Geology Gallery, to learn about the 130,000 square miles of the Colorado Plateau defined by colorful, horizontal strata, in many places deeply dissected by numerous canyons and made visible by the arid climate and lack of vegetation. Get acquainted with these formations, how they were created, and the accompanying flora and fauna hands-on in the gallery. Scientific specimens illustrate the story of the region and allow an intimate interaction with the past.

    Relish over about the arts from various tribes, and compare ancient, modern, and contemporary arts of the Colorado Plateau adorn the Babbitt Gallery. A selection of the Museum’s ceramic holdings demonstrates the extensive collection and classification system created by Dr. Harold Colton, Museum co-founder. Peruse jewelry holdings from the Rio Grande Pueblo, Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni. Highlights include the history of Hopi Overlay Silver and the discoveries found in Tim’s Cave in Sedona.

    The museum offers a variety of exhibits and public programs including lectures, readings, and hands-on activities for both children and adults. Expand your perspective and inspire your senses at the Museum of Northern Arizona.
