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

As a local, I find myself returning here about once a year and seeing something different each time. This is old school, no interactive displays, no digital anything, but just real stuff from Flagstaff's past. And an iron lung. And a great bookstore.

The upstairs is a timeline of Flagstaff and the country. Each of the decades has a small room dedicated to it. There is only room for 1 person per room. There is a steam locomotive with a log rail car and caboose (you can go through the caboose and sit in the chair (not much else in there). They have... More

History museums aren't usually my favorite, but this one was actually pretty interesting. Upstairs the rooms are designed like a timeline, with objects presented to represent each decade from 1880-1960. Downstairs the current exhibit highlights selected important objects that tell the story of Flagstaff. Another facet of the museum is medical history, as this building was originally a hospital for... More

This is a small, but very interesting museum. The building was formally a hospital for the indigent and offers many interesting pieces from the early 1920s and 1930s. This is a great spot to take in if you are spending the day in Flagstaff to combine with another attraction. The staff are very informative and take pride in their museum.
