We'd found Sharlot Hall Museum online looking for things to do in Prescott - so were really looking forward to our visit. We only had one afternoon so we worried we wouldn't see everything. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and told we could possibly do a tour in an hour, but having been there I really wish we'd had... More

The museum is well laid out and includes several building that tell the history of the area. Definitely a good use of time if you want to learn about the history of Prescott.

Located just 2 blocks from the courthouse square is a colorful panorama of Territorial Arizona history. The museum fills an entire city block. The 9 buildings are spaced on the campus with sidewalks to each. The campus is nicely landscaped with trees, shrubs, lawns & a rose garden. The info sheet/map you receive at the entrance is handy for your... More

Named after an early settler whose mission became preserving frontier history, featured are historic houses moved from nearby and the first territorial Governor's Mansion. This is somewhat pompously misleading title. The four room structure is made completely from hand cut Ponderosa pine. The knowledgable and friendly guide, of whom there is one at each house, mentioned two intriguing facts. This... More

not just a museum where you go once and see the same displays all the time. Sharlot Hall offers different venues all year long. From their art and Jewelry show yo wine tastings. its a great place to keep checking back on

Being new to Prescott this was quite a visit and history lesson. We had a docent give us a free tour and it was very entertaining and informative. During our visit they also had characters in period costumes at the various buildings.

I expected an old house with narations of local history. Instead, one enters a compound of sorts and is given a wealth of history. I think this is where the curators have overstepped their mission. The Paleo world did not connect to Arizona like the other exhibits did. I especially found the Governor's Mansion, on its original site, much more... More
