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

Absolutely loved this little gem of a museum. It's small but it's packed full of wonderfully put together exhibits on everything from native people to Andy Devine to mining to Old West to local wildlife. I was so impressed at the attention to detail. I took my husband, my father, and my 4 year old son and we all loved... More

This small museum was wonderful ! It told of Mojave County and how it was influenced by the Hualapai Indians, mining, the railroad, ranching, the military and the building of Boulder Dam. For you movie buffs, there was also a section devoted to Kingman's native son Andy Devine!!!! We allowed ourselves an hour and a half. It was not enough... More

We so enjoyed our two hours at the Mohave Museum of History, easy to maneuver about, excellent displays and exhibits. So glad we took the advice of others and set aside a day to visit the Kingman museums. The quilt, upon entering, is worth the visit. Take a good look at it. Eating at Cracker Barrel was a plus!!
