This remarkable museum received TripAdvisor Excellence in both 2014 and 2015. You absolutely must stop and see it. Plan an extra hour or two to visit. The displays are professional with good lighting and complete with excellent labels and descriptions. Many of the valuable collections are on loan from individuals and can not be seen anywhere else. My visit was... More

We dropped in here not knowing what to expect, we just saw the big guns outside and decided to go in. The volunteers are friendly and let us in with smiles. The first few rooms were not very exciting and we wondered if we might leave early, were not into dolls or china etc. But as we went on they... More

So much to see, so little time! Every time my husband and I stop by this museum we spend several hours walking around and enjoying all there is to see and learn. I always enjoy the doll room. Volunteer staff are always really friendly and informative. Great gift shop. Give yourself enough time to stop and enjoy this place!

This is quite a gem in the desert! A very large building with all the history and lore of the area. It's beautifully laid out and staffed by friendly and knowledgeable people who obviously love what they do!

This has to be one of the best museums there is. No matter your interest, they have something for you. The volunteer staff is great. We thought, oh maybe a 30 minutes to go through it. We left 2 hours later. It was fantastic. Hardily recommend this museum to any and everyone.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of items displayed here! The volunteers were friendly and informative too. There is no fee but you will feel good donating some money after you spend time here! We can easily say, "It is definitely a must-see attraction for all."

Get off the beaten path and check out this gem in the desert. Lots to see in this museum. Largest button hook collection I've ever seen...yes I said button hooks, but that is a very little tip of a big ice berg. Lots of Native American artifacts, superb pottery collection, arrow heads, etc. WW II Bataan memorial exhibit. Too much... More
