If you want to get some idea of what life was like in Arizona in the 19th century, Sharlott Hall museum is an excellent museum to visit.

They have a surprising number of artifacts,... More

The grounds have several buildings. The museum center is new and offers great background on local and state history, then one can stroll through the old governor's mansion and other buildings. The grounds are beautiful which lend to a relaxing and informational tour. The museum is within easy walking distance of the plaza.

Visited during an outdoor exposition. Had many different people dressed in period clothing talking about Prescott's history. The museum is made up of different buildings. Exhibits are well done. Information is interesting. Some of the old pictures are great.

We enjoyed the entire tour but especially loved the rose garden. We did not feel rushed, and the docents were very helpful.

An excellent snapshot of Prescott / Arizona history. Plan a minimum of one hour because there are several buildings. Knowledgeable local docents are usually on hand and very willing to provide additional information and answer questions.

We enjoyed looking at the exhibits as well as the "real life" demonstrations of the print office, laundry and general store from days long since past. My only complaint was that they stopped the short movie so they could get ready for some other deal. They should have either waited until it was over or not started it in the... More
