The Fort Tuthill Military History Museum is a small but comprehensive facility located on the grounds of Fort Tuthill County Park. This museum encompasses much Arizona military history from 1865 through today. Exhibits include uniforms, artifacts, maps, models, dioramas, photos, and narratives revealing the adventures of Arizona's citizen-soldiers covering nearly one and one-half centuries.
Many of the stories come as a surprise to locals and visitors alike. The focus is on the 158th Infantry, Arizona National Guard. This unit has served the territory, the state, and the country since the formation of the 1st Arizona Volunteers toward the end of America's Civil War. In 1929, because of General Alexander Tuthill's efforts, the fort became a state-of-the-art training facility. It was de-commissioned in 1948.
To visit the museum take I-17 to Exit #337 (about 4 miles south of Flagstaff, AZ.) Fort Tuthill County Park is west of the highway. After entering the park, follow the museum signs. The museum building, located near the entrance of the Fort Tuthill County Park Campground, is one of the original structures at Fort Tuthill. Current hours are Saturday & Sunday 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.. Adult admission is $3.00. Children younger than 13, active military, National Guard, and reserve are free.
