This would be an interesting place to check out if the docents would let you take in the history on your own terms. We like to wander through museums at our own pace and read the information provided, but the docents seems to have a script and would not let us explore at our own speed. It was an interesting...

October 2013 was the oldest Tripadvisor had on its pull-down, but we went there about 5 years ago. As I remember, it was an interesting place.

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.

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.
