We learned quite a bit about Cottonwood and I particularly enjoyed the "train" room. The docents are friendly and knowledgable. You can walk the museum on your own or have a docent accompany you.

This museum is well done. It has some very interesting exhibits and plenty of folks /volunteers to explain what each exhibit is all about and why it was and is important. Check out the model train setup. it is awesome. Children young and old will love this place. Enjoy!

The HO model train exhibit in this museum is well worth a visit. The detail is amazing. There is no charge, but donations are appreciated.

We are real museum addicts, and will visit any museum we encounter. This one is easy to miss, as it is not very readily identifiable. We passed it without knowing, and had to turn around and search again. The museum is in a wing of an old school building. A small group of very nice and knowledgeable volunteers run it.... More

What a nice surprise to find so much history in this museum. Our tour guide was so very knowledgeable and still excited about the museum's content. Someone has taken a lot of time and effort to put it all together so perfectly.

Could have come back just to visit with the two guys who run the train diorama. It's amazing and the short visit was super-friendly!

This volunteer-run, donations only place keeps very tight hours (during the week open only Wednesday morning), so for years I'd been missing it. Luck put me in Cottonwood sight-seeing at the right time at last, and pleased I am. The Clemenceau is a fine local history museum, with many impressive exhibits. The highlight-- what elevates the museum to five star... More

A surprise visit to this very unknown museum was a nice addition to our day. It is a piece of a former town, now incorporated into Cottonwood, with a large miniature train room, lots of authentic pieces from the past in the late 1800's, lots about the Verde Valley, old school room with old seats (have a seat), mining photos...
