Museum of Northern Arizona
Learn about the arts, cultures, and natural history of the Colorado Plateau on your own, or join a docent-led or behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum of Northern Arizona for additional insight and background knowledge. For a deep dive on a particular subject, participate in one of the museum’s classes or workshops.
Don’t forget to wander around outside, too: check out the region’s native plants in the gardens, or take in the dramatic views of the San Francisco Peaks while walking along one of the many trails.
