“GREAT Museum hidden away in the woods of Flagstaff!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

FABULOUS little museum chronicling the lives and artistry of area Native Americans; contemporary and older paintings by Arizona artists; and DINOSAURS! Something for everyone here! BEAUTIFUL displays - this was a pleasure to walk through, as well as a wonderful learning opportunity.

We held our breath as a few minutes after we entered and paid, a busload of about 25 four to ten year old students entered. We were PLEASANTLY surprised that the museum staff kept them well entertained and QUIET for the entire time they were there (plus, it was amazing what they were teaching them about the Jurassic Period). KUDOS to the museum employees as well as the summer instructors who were with the children!

“Small but Mighty!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This gem does everything; geology, anthropology, art. If you prefer dinosaurs to pottery that's ok. If you prefer modern artistic interpretations of Southwest landscapes over historical photographs, that's ok too. They have everything here. Good interactive displays for children and hands on learners, along with a lovely mix of photography and illustrations on displays. There's so much to see and do here!

“Interesting and educational”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Our group enjoyed the historical displays and information in this small but mighty museum! We got to see an amazing art presentation of Shonto Begay's paintings and previews of the Hopi Festival art.
