I wasn't prepared for how large this place was! It encompasses many buildings - each with it's own story, aritifacts and history. There are lots of interesting people to answer questions and tell you about the buildings and people who lived there. For $7 it was worth several hours of entertainment!

I enjoyed touring the Sharlot Hall Museum. There is a campus of roughly a dozen buildings / exhibits featuring the "old-time" Prescott area, including the former Governor's Mansion. It is a fairly quick stop if you want a little culture in a couple of hours or so. It is definitely not an all-day thing, but there are plenty of things... More

After you enjoy the museum and shop, take a time-out in the rose garden. The volunteers and staff are great and will answer your questions.

We became members of Sharlot Hall Museum last year. We go to most of their events and the last one was the Lincoln tribute. Outstanding. They also have a Native American festival during the summer and you don't want to miss. All in all, Sharlot Hall has a lot of history behind it and is well worth the trip.

You should not skip a visit to this museum. You will learn a lot about the local history, about the settlers and native Americans and their struggles here. I was very impressed with the museum and the displays. Also, there is a nice gift shop located inside one of the historic buildings.

This is not what you might think. It's a complex of several log cabins and other buildings that preserves early Arizona history. Sharlot Hall is the lady responsible for getting this started once she realized that so much history was being tossed as Arizona was beginning to modernize. Not only will you see the first "Governor's Mansion" (a log cabin),... More

We spent a rainy afternoon here and really enjoyed it. Learned a lot and had fun. The history was interesting and I enjoyed the different architecture styles.

We sort of stumbled upon this museum at 415 Gurley Street in Prescott, AZ, while visiting Whiskey Row. The history you will discover inside is remarkable. The volunteers that serve as your guides are pleasant and well versed. It is a good way to spend several hours; however be careful about the two hour parking limits all over town.

We enjoyed our visit to this museum. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and would introduce the house or display and then let us wander through on our own.

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
