This was a very informative museum made up of different buildings. Each building had a docent that could answer questions and give interesting accounts of the history. Very glad we made the effort to go here.

If you like the quaint not so distant history of the early settlers of Prescott, all tied into Arizona territorial history, this place is cooooool! The exhibits are done very well, and they even have a scavenger hunt for the little's.

We tour the exhibits a couple of times a year, and receive notices of new showings and events. There is a wealth of frontier history in Prescott and Sharlot Hall Museum is ground central. A tip of the hat to the excellent staff and docents

I have been to Sharlot Hall many times and I enjoy it very much. It contains a lot of Prescott history and they also have other exhibits that they change periodically. Any person who enjoys museum should not miss this one.

Sharlot Hall was a person, not a place...and this excellent collection of buildings is a wonderful presentation to give you a feeling for what life was like in the mid-19th century.

What a pleasant surprise and a great place to learn about the local history. From the dinosaurs to the local Indians to the settlers to present day Prescott. A really interesting 2 - 3 hours.

Trip Reviewers, thank you for sharing your enthusiasm for the Sharlot Hall Museum! We concur, it's not to miss when in Prescott. We arrived the day of the 18th annual Prescott Indian Art Market. It was located on museum property and we had a chance to talk with Native American artists from the south/southwest and purchase a few things before... More

One of the best museums I’ve ever been in. This is for local Arizona history only. It’s great if you are passing through or live in the state. Make sure the weather is good as you must walk outside between all the buildings. Not a far walk yet if it’s raining bring an umbrella. Everything you can think of, Fire... More
