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...

It is nice to see that the Verde Valley heritage is well taken care of by the museum staff and volunteers who were very friendly and informative.

Love the model train room. The place to learn about the Verde Valley mining, smelting, cattle ranching and railroads.

The volunteer interpreters were the highlight of this attraction. Very interesting and enjoyable especially the model railway room and the old schoolhouse room/a wonderful 90 minute visit that was affordable- admission by donation. To the folks at the Clemenceau Museum- you made our day and showed us the history of your community. We would return to visit you again

French Premier Georges Clemenceau was a good friend of James Douglas, founder of the town where the museum was located. So this little spot in the middle of the desert has a touch of France and a cookbook with a French recipe for sale. If you're looking for big-city excitement and quality, this is not the place, but I give... More
