Free pass from the other museum. Some good history about both kingman and Route 66, no where near as good as the other museum but still enjoyed it.

This was a little more interesting than the Route 66 museum as it had a lot of displays and interesting history. We enjoyed this a lot.

Really enjoyed this museum, it seemed more authentic than it's sister museum - Route 66 museum. They have an amazing collection of old photos and information on the area in times past. The exhibition on mining was very impressive. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit.

One ticket gets you into both this and the Route 66 museum. Quality displays, nice tribute to favorite native son- Andy Divine.

We had some time to spare while in Kingman an went to the Mohave Museum and were glad we did. The place is loaded with so many historical pieces. Things I haven't seen in years. Old mining equipment, paintings of presidents which as very interesting historical pieces. I like history so it was great and the woman at the desk... More

I liked the story of the settler who was captured by one tribe and sold to another tribe who tattooed her chin before she was freed. I preferred to have larger print in the displays or have them raised higher up.

A very worthwhile place to spend some time after the Route 66 museum, includes a fair bit about the Indian tribes & local mining activities.

There were so many interesting displays, one could easily spend a couple hours in here just looking at everything and reading everything. I'd really recommend this to everyone. For $4 you get a pass to this museum, the Route 66 museum and the Bonelli house. Well worth much more $$$.

This museum is great! Loved the various exhibits and it is quite large so take time reviewing the pictures of the presidents/first ladies as well as miners and Indians. They have done a fantastic exhibit and well worth stopping and going through
