The guides and docents were fantastic and knowledgeable. You should try to go during the week and make sure to ask questions. These volunteers know their history and are more than willing to share. Go today!

The museum is much larger than we anticipated, with several buildings on the grounds. Like a miniature Greenfield Village. The fully restored Governor's Mansion is not to be missed, as is the introductory film in the first building. We met one docent who was quite informative and not at all intrusive. You exit via an interesting gift shop, loaded (among... More

Great stop for a couple of hours to learn a bit about Prescott and Arizona history. Solid and enjoyable museum and worth the time and small price of admission.

We spent hrs. here looking at all the old artifacts and reading about the history of Prescott. Perfect for a day when the weather isn't great, but good any time. We really enjoyed it.

it is hard to imagine, what with the roar of traffic passing by, yourself in the territorial capital of arizona of more than 100 years ago. the governor's "mansion" was a rough-hewn, log cabin. moving on, transportation included horses, buggies, wagons, and then bicycles and horseless carriages. but even before that, long before, our ancestors forged and hunted long after...

Christmas at Sharlot Hall is fabulous. All the old buildings are decorted for Christmas. They make cookies in the old pot belly stove in one of the cabins and serve them with hot apple cider. Very interesting Museum from the old days of Prescott.

We came in late in the day and only had about an hour and a half. We only saw about half of what was there. Winter time the hours are shorter than summer. The Docents were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot from them.

The museum itself is fine: great docents, interesting sites... worth a quick stop if you're going through Prescott. The issue is that the museum's leadership refuses to make reasonable accommodation for the handicapped. There is a museum parking lot with a gate that opens directly into the museum grounds - perfect for wheeling a wheelchair directly into the museum. However,... More

This is not some grandiose museum; rather a walk through the past. You can visit various bldgs that are part of the museum and see how 19th century Prescottonians lived. It's realistic because all that you see is real, not manufactured. A must visit on any trip to Prescott.

I would like to join the chous, nicely run and very interesting. Sharlot herself was quite the gal for her time, there are a few books on her and other pioneer women in the book store. You can roam the grounds an check out various homes and buildings dating back over 100+ years. It is walking distance to the town... More
