  • Amazing experience! Would definitely visit again. Loads to see and learn about. The entire museum can seen in a couple hours. We were in Phoenix and it was a very scenic drive to the museum. The museum also has a trail. I do recommend long pants, tennis, and bug spray. Trail is not good for strollers so bring your baby carriers.
  • We always stop here when passing through Flagstaff for both the informative and always changing museum exhibits, and the carefully curated selections of Native American crafts in their gift shop. Always a pleasure and have picked up baskets and jewelry here over the years.
  • What a wonderful find up in Flagstaff, AZ!. We came upon this museum by accident. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Unfortunately, I didn't get the front desk lady's name but she was wonderful. She explained the layout of the museum and made our visit and experience exceptional. The displays are great and educational. Just a great experience.
  • Came here for a class project and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the exhibits were. I just love the new intro to -I believe- the 3rd exhibit on the map with the different Native American speakers welcoming visitors in their own language. Looking forward to bringing my mom when she visits this month!
  • What a wonderful museum! Learned a lot about geology, archeology and the most treasured heritage of native Americans, with my two girls. Well done!
