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!!

If you don't know anything about this area, try this museum that has several sites. The main building houses portraits of every U.S. President and the First Ladies. Exhibits related to the Native Americans are plentiful along with a special display of Andy Devine. Special recognition to Native Americans who served in wars is well done. We will return to... More

Here I go again. Another small museum in a desert city, with miles and miles of miles and miles in all directions from Kingman. This is, for me anyway, a wonderful stop between Las Vegas and Phoenix, Via Wickenburg of course! The mural on the outside is inviting, the docents are so friendly, some may feel like victims, as the... More

Small museum with a lot of local history, One of the best hall of presidents (paintings) that I've seen. Good way to spend an hour or two.

This museum would not be confused with any high-class museum but it does serve a purpose. If you are interested in historical mining of the area this actually is a good place to go because it does have a large section on mining. It also has a fairly decent Native American section as well. If you want more of the... More

This is a beautiful museum, with a lot of very well-displayed exhibits. The exhibits cover the entire Kingman region. There are Native American dolls and pottery; Andy Devine memorabilia; mining exhibits; and a wonderful selection of "daily life" items.
