“Small town small scale. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This museum would not be confused with any high-class museum but it does serve a purpose. If you are interested in historical mining of the area this actually is a good place to go because it does have a large section on mining. It also has a fairly decent Native American section as well.

If you want more of the route 66 history go over to the powerhouse Museum.

“Really nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

This is a beautiful museum, with a lot of very well-displayed exhibits.

The exhibits cover the entire Kingman region. There are Native American dolls and pottery; Andy Devine memorabilia; mining exhibits; and a wonderful selection of "daily life" items.

“Small but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is not the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It does have some lovely displays of Mohave County History and alternating local artist displays. It's worth an hour or two and nicely can tie in with The Powerhouse Museum and a Downtown Kingman tour.

“Full of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

What a great museum especially for those of us from across the waters. It gives you an insight into the history of the area as well as a look at past and present presidents of the USA. We loved looking at the old photo's and artefacts and as a bonus got entry into the Route 66 museum across the road and to Bonelli House a short drive away. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Worth a visit.

“A walk back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

A great compliment to the other museum in town that has more Route 66 information. This is a wonderful place! Another learning experience about the History of Kingman and Mohave County. Don't miss this one if you are in the area!
