As a native of Arizona I must say I was surprised how much I learned about the history of my home state. I found it fascinating and very informative. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Prescott.

Sharlot Hall was a lady with the presence of mind to preserve items for future generations, what a gift of foresight. You can see the Original Generals House, Old buildings preserved, the history of the area, walk amongst the flowers beds, see the old buildings, visit the gift shop, be informed about the museum by Volunteers dressed in the clothes...

We were driving through Prescott in our RV and this was a welcome break. Car park is very handy, and free. There are numerous buildings so make sure you go in each one, it is easy to pass one by.

In town, nice park setting. Cudos to Sharlot Hall and all the work she did to preserve some of Arizona's past. Congratulations to the museum staff and board for an excellent museum.

We didn't think it would be as extensive as it was. The new prehistoric wing was excellent. The docents in each building shared interesting stories about each one.

The museum is really good however i must echo other comments and say that the docents are not entirely necessary and i felt slightly uncomfortable with the level of what was (to me) a level of intrusion. All well meaning, i would just rather wander about myself. Worth going tho.

we went during the folk music festival. Good fun. Good exhibits. If you want a real thrill, go over to the archives and look up your ancestors.

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...
