This is a great collection of houses with various exhibits. The docents were very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. We enjoyed seeing all the different buildings and exhibits and learning more about the region. It took us 2 1/2 hours to leisurely go through the grounds.

I was interested , there were not many people to tell about the buildings. I was glad it was only $7.00.

The museum provides a great historical perspective of Arizona and the Prescott area. You also get the chance to learn about a truly amazing woman, Sharlott Hall, who was a true leader in recognizing the importance of, and preserving, our history. The original Governors mansion and other buildings and artifacts are located on the grounds. Admission was $7.00 for adults... More

In response to “Horrible Ending”, it is a shame that you let one little incident tarnish your outlook on the whole experience of visiting Sharlot Hall Museum. I have personally been to the museum numerous times, and have never had a single volunteer or worker treat me in a rude way. Unfortunately, many people have taken advantage of the “therapy... More

We were really pleased after visiting the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott. We spent several hours there and enjoyed seeing the artifacts of the era; along with different houses and structures. We learned quite a lot about our adopted state. the volunteers and docents knew quite a bit about the exhibits and attractions.

I've lived in Prescott for 11 years, and this is one stop for our visitors. It's an outdoor museum that has several different structures that have been moved to the location. I don't know what the fee is since I haven't been there for some time. Our first visit gave us a feel for the town years ago. Prescott was... More

The beginning & middle part of the tour were absolutely everything we'd hoped it would be. The ending ruined the entire tour. As the last house on the tour is the Bashford house, as well as the gift shop/exit. My family as well as our service canine entered we were rudely greeted by Jan Barrett, one of the volunteers. She... More

My wife & I were not familar with this historical attraction until we visited the Chamber of Commerce who recommended it. Just a few blocks off the square this museum is an excellent example of Arizona in the 1800's --- before it was a State. This museum is extremely well kept and is a must for the early history of...

Sharlot hall museum was founded in 1928 by Sharlot M Hall and what a lovely experience it was as we went from building to building...the little school house with its benches and wooden painted black board and its little slate boards for the children. The Governors mansion was so interesting and then their was the exhibit centre. We saw most... More
