A series of buildings for the visitor to enter and learn about the Prescott Valley/AZ Territory and how they developed. The original log-cabin Governor's Mansion is the crown jewel, and there are helpful docents on hand to tell stories of pioneer hardship. We heard how the 2nd Governor's young wife, Margaret McCormick, came from NJ by ship up the Sea... More

As a local I love taking people to this museum. It is a great place with really friendly staff and tells the history of the area. The buildings are always fun to check out. It is an outdoor walking museum so make sure to take the proper attire and go early rather than later since they sometimes close before dinner.... More

Very educational, but fun too! Interesting to see real homes and how people lived in the early days of the west. There is a senior rate (a dollar off the $7 entrance fee).

The museum has several structures from early Prescott, such as the Governor's mansion. At the time we visited there was a special exhibit featuring prehistoric animals of the northern Arizona. The museum does an excellent job of telling Prescott's early history.

The travel tip said give the tour an hour. We took two. It is really an homage to Sharlot Hall, her friends, benefactors and the amazing people of Prescott to invest such labor, time and money to maintain the history of this amazing city. It was simply amazing. To step back into true (rather than contrived, which seems sadly the... More

We enjoyed the local history and the friendly people. My favorite was the many things collected by Sharlot Hall. It's worth a visit and doesn't take forever to walk through

Sharlot Hall must have bee quite an incredible individual and one I would like to have met! She was the mover behind this museum and the volunteers at the Sharlot Hall Museum have continued to add and improve what is available at the museum - with truly outstanding results. There are more than 9 buildings, many portraying early life in... More

I liked the helpfulness of the staff. We went first thing in the morning and everyone was very upbeat and friendly! The museum is well done and buildings well preserved. They say go to the car museum onsite and included in the price. That is just OK in my mind. Gardens are nicely done as well, with frontier plantings as... More

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
