The Museum of Northern Arizona was established in 1928 by a group of Flagstaff citizens as a repository for Native American artifacts and natural history specimens from the Colorado Plateau. Over its 72-year history in Flagstaff, the Museum of Northern Arizona has evolved into a regional center of learning with collections, exhibits, educational programs, publications, and research projects that serve more than 100,000 people each year.
Group tours are available, including self-guided and docent-led tours. The museum's docents are specially trained gallery interpreters. All group tours must be arranged in advance. The museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., excluding major holidays.
