My parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the museum- long overdue having lived in Flagstaff for 27 years! The displays were incredibly interesting and we loved all of the bits and pieces of local history included in the signage- so many events and people that we'd never heard of before! And to see them interwoven with the... More

Lots of history. The staff were very friendly & informative. They are still working on some exhibits; however, still was a great stop for us. We will go back next time we are there.

I found this museum very different from museums in England. I went with family and we were greeted by a very pleasant woman who was clearly interested in her museum and gave us some interesting information before we went in. The museum was an old hospital building from the 1930s It had different sections eg childrens school room and nurses... More

This museum is located in an old hospital building from the 1930s. It was saved and preserved to house a myriad of antiques and items from the past, both relating to the hospital and regular household items. The collection is huge and each room of the hospital holds items separated by the years, ie. 1920, 1930, etc. A couple of... More

Unless you are really into antiques and truly fascinated by old things, this might be one attraction to skip. We went with the kids during our vacation they more or less breezed through everything in less than 30 minutes. The collection seemed to be more of an assortment of anything old they were donated, so there was stuff from the... More

For a historical society run museum I am surprised at the morass of unlabeled 'stuff'; it made me sad. I have to say it was hard for me to rate this poor but it gets the mark it deserves. The employee who takes your fee was sure friendly ( really sharp and friendly) and I am sure if there was... More

We stopped at the Pioneer Museum because we passed it nearly every day on our way to and from our vacation rental. Although the museum has some interesting items and the only employee was nice and helpful, the museum is a work-in-progress. The first floor is somewhat organized and many items are labeled in three smallish rooms, but there are... More

Worth the stop. Our three young children loved it, especially the hands on school room...wooden toys, cookware, cowboy toys, etc. A great time learning about AZ history!

The museum is still in the process of organizing the items they have. The upstairs timeline exhibit is nicely done. One of the employees we talked to will show you everything and the history behind everything. It is set up more for kids than adults, but there is a lot everyone can learn there.

This museum has potential, and for only $5 you really can't complain. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful. One gentleman we met was just amazing. He really had a sense of ownership about the museum, and showed us the barn and a few other unfinished items. The iron lung was great. The pioneer house was well done. However, there... More
