Quaint museum with a lot of heart gives you a feel for town history

I love small town museums, and this one is no exception. There are displays about local life from its start as a company mining town, to a family's collection of belt buckles, to... read more

I love small town museums, and this one is no exception. There are displays about local life from its start as a company mining town, to a family's collection of belt buckles, to a 1920-30's classroom, to an incredibly detailed model train room showing the area when it was humming with mining activity, plus an eclectic assortment of other historical...

This is a large historic building, half of which is still local school administration and the other half of which is this interesting and eclectic collection of local history. It's a good way to orient yourself to the Verde Valley in general, since it covers mining, agriculture, and daily life in general, including a restored classroom. The very best is... More

The cutest little museum ever! Easy and interesting enough for kids and elderly too. The train room is awesome. If you like what you see you can pop over to Old Town Cottonwood and visit Larry's Antiques and Things where you'll find everthing you saw in the museum on sale!

A small museum but staffed by helpful (mostly elderly) volunteers. The train guys really get into it! Great place to spend an hour or so. My last visit was several years ago, but I enjoyed it. Will visit again in future.

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.
