Do not miss this attraction!

I believe there were nine buildings to visit.! The volunteers provided very interesting commentary and the exhibits were excellent. The time spent here was well worth it.

We've been to Prescott on several trips and this was our first time to Sharlot Hall Museum. Very fun and educational. Much more to see than appears from the outside. We went in expecting to stay an hour and 3+ hours later we were still learning about Prescott! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Loved listening to the stories... More

Excellent history park where you may enter Arizona's first Governor's Mansion on the original site. Other historical buildings have been moved to the location. Artifacts are well preserved. This is a must see for anyone traveling in Arizona.

Historic homes and artifacts are depicted at Sharrlot Hall Museum in downtown Prescott. I especially enjoyed seeing the guns and reading the stories of long-age sheriffs. There's even photos of the last hangings in Arizona. Volunteers and staff are very friendly. Cost is reasonable at seven dollars per person, six dollars for seniors. There is a huge gift shop at...

Fascinating trip to this quaint museum. Really rich in the history of Prescott area. Fun place for all ages to learn about a woman who was far before her time. She had the foresight to collect and preserve the artifacts for all to see.

Neat place to go anytime but to walk back in time in this historic place is great. Hear stories about the governor and his family or how school kids learned to read. It was a great visit.

When your whole family goes, it can take awhile to make it through this museum, for there is a lot to see. They added new sections. We were impressed with the docents/employees - they seemed to be very knowledgeable and friendly. Expect a lot of information on the Prescott area and its history. It would be nice to see more...
