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

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.
