The Museum of Northern Arizona is located on Highway 180 (N. Fort Valley Road) on the north side of Flagstaff.  It is open daily from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.  Entrance fees are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, $7 for students, and $6 for children.  In its ninth decade, it features nine permanent exhibit galleries and yearly changing exhibits covering the Colorado Plateau, the Grand Canyon, and the Four Corners region, all of which will enhance your experience of the richly diverse cultures, landscapes, and ecology of the Plateau.  The permanent exhibit galleries include the Geology Gallery, the Archaeology Gallery, the Ethnology Gallery, the Kiva Gallery, the Navajo Weaving Gallery, and the Babbitt Gallery.  The day I was there it had an excellent exhibit on the Therizinosaur or Sickle-claw Dinosaur.  They have a bookstore and large museum gift shop.  Their new Easton Collection Center, a state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot facility, was dedicated June 21, 2009, and will house items from their extensive collections.  There are self-guided tours or weekly museum tours every Saturday at 2 P.M.  They offer unparalleled opportunities to discover and explore the Colorado Plateau with their Ventures Tours.  For more information on the museum or one of the Venture Tours, visit their website at:
