Visited in the afternoon and saw everything available to see in about an hour. Several things not open due to weather. Probably a lot more interesting in the summer. Lots of things to read, not much interactive stuff for kids or non-readers. Admission was included in a combo pass from the Riordan House Museum (so it only cost $4 person).... More

Slip back in time to those pioneer days of the old Arizona Territory - history of the cattle industry, railroads, land barons, and yes, ordinary people too. Great exhibits in and around a very historic two-story stone building that was formerly a small hospital, built on the headquarters site of an old cattle ranch. Knowledgeable staff will answer your questions... More

It's bigger than you'd think (indoor and outdoor) and has very interesting exhibits. Would absolutely see again.

Steam Engine out front is an all time favorite for locals and visitors. The museum itself is tiny, with narrow passages. The Pioneer Museum is also an event site and may combine programs at same time as Coconino Center for the Arts, next door.

We visited on a beautiful day. This is an indoor and outdoor museum. Upstairs in the museum had more interesting displays that met my interests. The outside museum was a nice walk with the train and other interesting things to see and reminisce over.

Visited this very nice museum with our grand-daughter - - who wouldn't stop by seeing the locomotive parked outside? Very informative about the building's former history as a hospital. The medical apparatus in use at the time was well displayed! The 'upstairs' exhibits were fine as well - - the original nurse's room - - as well as all the... More

This museum, housed in what was once a hospital for the poor, has a variety of displays. There are medical displays, household displays, industry displays and the top floor has rooms separated by decades. Outside is a restored locomotive with several cars. In the back of the property is a display of a small pioneer village. This museum is good... More

We had not planned this stop but saw it on our way to the Grand Canyon and decided to stop. We were with an 11yr old and a 6yr old and they enjoyed the museum. I think its worth the stop.

We visited the museum on Saturday, and luckily, there was a wool festival happening on the grounds, so admission was free! The building originally housed an indigent hospital, and there is an exhibit downstairs devoted to its history. Upstairs are rooms that are each dedicated to a specific decade of the 20th Century, and I imagine they were originally the... More
