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.

This would be an interesting place to check out if the docents would let you take in the history on your own terms.

October 2013 was the oldest Tripadvisor had on its pull-down, but we went there about 5 years ago. As I remember, it was an interesting place.
