We visit here every time we're in Flagstaff, have done so for years. Their five permanent exhibit galleries contain information on anthropology, biology and geology of the southwest, with special accent on native peoples. There are also three additional galleries with changing exhibits. During our trip one had an exhibit titled "Mountain Lion" and another had an exhibit about Mary-Roberts Ferrel Colton, an artist in the early years of the 20th century and the museum's first curator. Both exhibits were fascinating. There's a nature trail and beautiful scenery surrounding the stone museum building and it's delightful to sit outside and enjoy the view. The museum has an excellent book store and an even better gift shop, which sells top quality native American jewelry, pottery and art work. It's a great place to buy because the museum deals fairly with local artists, and it's a non profit organization, so you don't pay sales tax. It's hard not to come away with something striking.
