Get idyllic desert sunrise photos from a hot air balloon ride that concludes with a champagne breakfast in the desert. For a unique insight into the hot air balloon, begin your tour by watching the balloon filling process—and even going inside the balloon as it is filling. Then, with a 45 flight, you have ample time to enjoy the ride and capture photographs.

This is a small museum, but it really is very nice and gives you lots of history on the Cave Creek area in the early days. It only takes about an hour.

We are glad you enjoyed your visit, BruceandCathy2014! Our docents really enjoy sharing their love and knowledge of the history of the Desert Foothills. May we assume you are a "new local" to the area by your comment? If so, we certainly hope you'll stop in again soon---we are going to have the most AMAZING exhibit for 2019-2020, featuring trailblazing architect and builder, Gerry Jones. We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review! Happy summering!

Spent a very pleasant couple of hours here enjoying the displays and the stories from the docents. Outside there's a restored ore-crushing machine, a frontier church--and a cabin that was one of many housing isolated tuberculosis patients.

We appreciate your review, geomoffat! We love sharing the history of our Desert Foothills region, from the pre-history Hohokum Indians who occupied this region over 500 years ago to what we refer to as the "Pioneer Period", when Cave Creek evolved through many personas---mining, ranching, a "cure" for those with lung ailments, dude ranches... We hope you will come back to visit---the 2019-2020 Season, the Cave Creek Museum will be featuring one of our largest and most challenging exhibits yet!

This is a small museum in a great little western town. The old timers are docents and tell you all of the old stories about how cave creek was where people with TB went in the old days and how they lived. They tell you about how people came for the gold rush and lot of fun stories. A very nice place to visit for the whole family and it is only 5 bucks to get in.

Thank you for the shout-out, grannybeth2016, and we are happy you enjoyed your visit to the Cave Creek Museum. The TB sanitarium era in Cave Creek's history is an interesting period, and we are so happy to be the possessor of Arizona's ONLY REMAINING TB cabin. Hopefully you saw the plaque noting that the cabin is on the National Registry of Historic places---that makes us proud! Please come back and visit again!
