Just a bit north of Flagstaff and

a bit south of Wupatki Pueblo

ruins, you will find the jewel of

a place called Museum of

Northern Arizona.

Founded in 1928 by Dr. Harold

S. Colton (Author of

Hopi Ka-

china Dolls)

and artist Mary-

Russell Ferrell Colton, the mu-

seum was developed to inspire

a sense of love and responsibil-

ity for the beauty and diversity

of the Colorado Plateau’s natu-

ral and cultural heritage.

From humble beginnings, the

museum has evolved into a

regional center of learning. The

beautiful 200 acre museum

campus houses more than five

million Native American arti-

facts, natural science specimens

and fine art pieces.

The museum houses many

excellent permanent exhibits

including pottery, kachina dolls

and jewelry.

Also featured are impressive

rotating exhibits such as

A:shiwi

A:wan Ulohnanne – The Zuni

World

, that highlights the Zuni

peoples’ unique approach to

mapping with art. Thirty Zuni

map art paintings and accompa-

nying videography and acoustic

productions are part of the ex-

hibit.

MNA also features many Heri-

tage Cultural festivals including

the Zuni Festival of Arts and

Culture, the Hopi Festival of

Arts and Culture, and the Na-

vajo Festival of Arts and Cul-

ture.

MNA is a great place to learn

and to enrich the spirit. It is

one of our favorite places.
