A Visit to the Museum of Northern Arizona
During our visit to Flagstaff’s 24th Annual Winterfest, we planned a visit to the Museum of Northern Arizona.
As you will quickly learn, if you join us as a subscriber of our website, we love to visit museums, and are great lovers of looking at the world through other people’s eyes.
As we moved through the museum we found exhibits of Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni artifacts, jewelry, and interesting galleries highlighting the daily lives of the native peoples occupying this area of the Colorado Plateau.
Also, during our visit, we were lucky enough to stumble upon a large exhibit of 51 watercolors by Gunnar Widforss. As you can see in the painting displayed here, Widforss was able to produce near photographic details with watercolors.
Widforss enjoyed America’s newly created National Parks, and you will find a sampling of many of the west’s National Parks in this exhibit.
If you find yourself visiting Flagstaff, I would highly recommend that you set aside a few hours to investigate this highly interesting, and informative museum. There are plenty of hands-on displays to keep your children’s attention, as well as many wonderful things to delight the mind of any inquisitive adult.
