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... More

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.

There were so many great exhibit rooms, but easy enough to spend a couple of fantastic hours here. I found myself wanting to read every label, which is generally not my habit. Every room was perfectly curated. Everyone was incredibly friendly. The whole museum was well-designed and quiet and so inviting. It's also in a BEAUTIFUL location. I can't wait... More

This is a very 'modern' museum with bright and airy themed rooms. The interesting and intriguing, deeply fascinating displays are well lit, with just enough information of large boards which are easy to read and understand also for people who have no prior knowledge of the subject. We were there yesterday for the annual Hopi Art Festival, so it was... More

Lots of unique stuff to see. Lots of native art, and replicas of dinosaurs too. I especially loved the beach ball size iron meteor rock that crashed into Meteor Crater AZ. Price seemed a little steep, but it was a nice museum.
