I really enjoyed learning of the settling of Kingman and seeing old relics. Very informative, and it was a wonderful break from a tedious day of business I was conducting in Kingman.

We stopped here on way out of town on Route 66. It's a nice well thought out museum with lots of history and artifacts of the local Kingman area, AZ and the desert southwest. The 2 staff people we met were both very nice and friendly. It's worth the stop while driving through town.

Kingman is not the largest town on the map but they sure know how to do an interesting museum. There are several in town but this one stands out! Information on Kingman is available but there are other exhibit to check out as well. The Presidential Portraits and Native American Exhibit are very well done. The gift shop is cute... More

This somewhat small museum is full of interesting displays and artifacts that help a traveler better understand the significance of the area and it's importance in Arizona history. Great folks working there and a fine gift shop as well. A worthy stop on Rt.66.

Very good museum to learn about little known facts historical to the area. Exhibits are well thought out and displayed in a concise manner. The museum staff are very helpful in explaining any exhibit. Well worth a stop.

This museum is great if you have been touring around the Mohave and Kingman area. The displays tell the story of change from all points of view. Your ticket will also allow you free entry to the Route 66 museum down the road in the Powerhouse. Can't be bad?

We enjoyed our visit to the Mohave Museum. What stood out to me were the staff and volunteers who are so friendly, informative and passionate about their museum. We especially enjoyed the Andy Devine display, including his incredible Rose Parade saddle. Being a horse person, and past parade participant, I was appreciative of the custom designed saddle for a man... More

This is a small museum all on one floor with exhibits both inside and out. Reasonably priced ($4 for adults, $3 for seniors and children under 12 free which also includes admission to Historic Route 66 Museum and the Bonelli House which depicts life in Arizona in the early 20th century), the museum relates the history of the area from...

This was our first time visiting inside, although my husband did photograph the outside back in October when we were returning from a family reunion in Phoenix. My niece especially enjoyed the Indian displays, I didn't realize she was such a fan of Native American culture until she and her father accompanied us to attend the Route 66 Festival. Great...

We toured this museum along with Route 66 Museum & Bonelli House as part of the International Route 66 Festival. All three were well worth the visit but this one especially was packed with information about Mojave County city of Kingman and Route 66. There is a great exhibit on Andy Devine, an actor who was from the area, information... More
