AFFELDT MION MUSEUM
The Affeldt Mion Museum located in La Posada Hotel’s 1930 depot connects the history of Winslow Arizona through art. The founders, Allan Affeldt and Tina Mion, celebrate the traditions brought by native people and then expanded upon by visionaries, past and present, who have contributed to Winslow’s success. Affeldt Mion Museum values historic preservation, creative expression, and an appreciation of the bigger picture of what art can do for a community.
NEW EXHIBITS OPEN NOW! The largest known hand-carded and hand-spun Navajo Rug is now on permanent display at Affeldt Mion Museum, in conjunction with the Winslow Arts Trust. The rug, commissioned by Lorenzo Hubbell Jr. in 1932 to promote his Winslow trading post and woven by Navajo artist Julia Joe, returned to Winslow thanks to Allan Affeldt and Tina Mion. Displaying a rug of this size and importance took years of planning but is now available for the public to enjoy. In the adjacent contemporary gallery, you’ll find the Licher Collection of Historic Navajo Weavings, circa 1910-1930.
HOURS: Affeldt Mion Museum is open seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm. There is a $5 admission. (Free with proper i.d. to Winslow residents, Native Americans, and Students).
