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

Some interesting exhibits, but a little disappointing because some of the areas were not open even though we visited on a weekend.

The entry fee of $6 is reasonable. The historic building holds two floors of local historical objects and facts. They did an excellent job of developing a timeline that presents the local Flagstaff history with other U.S. historical events. Small kids would probably not be interested in most of it.

Decided to continue our education with a visit to the Pioneer Museum. Right nextdoor to a school – note that the speed limit is 15 mph and people were observing it. Obviously the police enforce. Museum is in an interesting building – originally the Indigent Hospital. Very friendly and helpful docent on Reception. Contents are a work in progress with... More
