Museums in Flagstaff!



     The Museum of Northern Arizona was founded in 1928 by Dr. Harold S. Colton and artist Mary-Russell Ferrell Colton of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  The Museum is dedicated to the study of the natural history of the Colorado Plateau and its Native American cultures.  In the last 80+ years, the Museum has grown to a vast repository of over 5 million Native American artifacts, biological specimens from the Colorado Plateau, and unique pieces of fine art.

     Today, as through its history, the Museum of Northern Arizona has adhered to its initial core mission, as established by the Coltons in 1928:
-Research - "To increase knowledge of science and art."
-Collections - "To collect and preserve objects of art and scientific interest."
-Education - "To diffuse knowledge and appreciation of science and art."
-Conservation - "To preserve and protect the region's historic and prehistoric sites, works of art, scenic places, and wildlife from needless destruction."
- Place - "To maintain a museum in the city of Flagstaff that provides facilities for research and aesthetic enjoyment.

     Throughout the year, the Museum has changing exhibitions and events, such as the ever popular Hopi and Navajo Shows.
