This museum is fairly small but the external mural is worth the trip and the inside is interesting, if limitted

I live in Kingman. I've lived here for ten years and last year I visited the Mohave Museum of History and Arts. I was impressed. It is a smaller museum but packed full of very interesting features. The presidents and first lady's pictures from George Washington to Barack Obama are hanging in the museum. There is so much to see.... More

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.

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.
