Museum & Exhibits
The Homolovi Visitor Center includes exhibits explaining the archaeology of the ancient people of Homolovi. When residents of the area left, they traveled north and joined the people living on the Hopi Mesas, becoming ancestors of the Hopi people of today.
The art of the Hopi reflects this heritage. Additional exhibits tell of the continuing tradition of Hopi pottery, carving and other art forms. The work of various artists including the art of Hopi children is incorporated in a changing exhibit.
In addition, the park maintains a collection of returned artifacts from within the Winslow area. These include prehistoric pottery wares, stone and bone tools. There is also historical art works by Fannie Nampeyo, Charles Loloma, Paqua Naha (First Frog Woman) and Helen (Feather Woman) Naha from the late 1880s to the late 1960s.
Whether you're an astronomy enthusiast or just enjoy looking up at the night sky, the Winslow Homolovi Observatory (WHO) is open for solar and star parties. The Moore Telescope (Celestron CGE Pro 14-in. Schmidt-Cassegrain) is computerized with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects and the structure is a donation to Homolovi State Park from members of the Little Colorado River Valley Astronomy Club, the City of Winslow, and local merchants. Our observation area has additional telescopes and Hydrogen-alpha light solar telescopes for daytime solar viewing. Astronomy events are held monthly with special programs througout the year.
