    Permanent exhibits include: Geology Gallery - Features geologic models, fossils and mineral specimens. The exhibits in this area introduce you to the many changes the Colorado Plateau has undergone through millions of years of geologic and volcanic activity. This gallery houses the life-size skeletal model of Dilophosaurus, a carnivorous dinosaur found in northern Arizona.

    Lockett Fine Arts Gallery - Guests can find exemplary fine arts of the region in this gallery. The Lockett and the Chase Gallery also highlight some of the Museum's own outstanding collection of easel art and sculpture.

    Ethnology Gallery - The Museum's award-winning permanent anthropology exhibit, Native Peoples of the Colorado Plateau, documents 12,000 years of occupation in the region. The Ethnology Gallery enlightens visitors about the daily lives of tribes today, many of whom balance traditional lifestyles with jobs and activities outside their reservations.

    Babbitt Gallery - An intimate gallery complete with a reading area and fireplace. This exhibit features 151 prehistoric and contemporary ceramic vessels from both the Babbitt Collection and Museum of Northern Arizona's general collections.

    Biology - The Old Courtyard features a Life Zone Exhibit, where visitors are introduced to the extraordinary diversity of the Colorado plateau climate. During the spring, summer and fall, outdoor exploration opportunities are available on the museum campus. Visitors can stroll along the nature trail and visit the amphibian pond to see local plants and wildlife. Written nature trail guidebooks are available at the Admissions Desk.
