An excellent snapshot of Prescott / Arizona history. Plan a minimum of one hour because there are several buildings. Knowledgeable local docents are usually on hand and very willing to provide additional information and answer questions.

We enjoyed looking at the exhibits as well as the "real life" demonstrations of the print office, laundry and general store from days long since past. My only complaint was that they stopped the short movie so they could get ready for some other deal. They should have either waited until it was over or not started it in the... More

I think my favorite is the 2 story log cabin governor's mansion. I love the separate building (schoolhouse, typical ranch house, etc, & all the flowers & veggie garden. Great displays of Indian life in one building, prehistoric in another & the gift shop in a great victorian!

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.

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
