Guess they are not expecting tourists on Sunday. Outside has nice murals, doors closed. Government operation. Sad state of affairs. Other photos are from around the city.

You will love this little museum. Lots of hard work was put into it by a community that loves Kingman. Visit the gift shop. Admission is almost nothing.

This facility is one of a kind for the size of community it represents. Very informative, displays are professional and the staff, many volunteers, are friendly and helpful. A nice gift shop is a bonus

We visited about a week ago on our way to Las Vegas. This museum has something for everyone when it comes to local history. It covers the early exploration of the area by pioneers, the cattle industry, the role in WW2 of the local Army Air base, and local Hollywood hero and legend Andy Devine. Give this at least and...

Because this museum didn't open until 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and since the cost was already included with our visit to Route 66 museum, we made it a point to visit it on our way home. We were so glad we did! The history of the area was thoroughly told by dioramas, starting from early Native Americans, through the mining... More

This is a very cute, small historical museum with some eclectic secondary exhibits that seem slightly out of place. I recommend visiting the outdoors exhibits in the back (specifically the caboose). The BEST thing about this museum was the wonderful (and impressive) collection of paintings of every president and his wife. This display is one of only 3 in the... More

Having been to Kingman many times, I'd never actually been to the Mohave Museum and it's certainly well worth a visit. Much of it is a little hokey - I loved the identikit paintings of presidents and first ladies all by the same person in the 'Presidents Gallery', but it has some gems like the wedding dresses and the slide...

Went here and the Route 66 museum forth the four dollars. Think there is a house that you can go though but we didn't. Worth seeing the history

What a wonderful museum to visit. Too many wonderful exhibits to mention. Surprises galore. Step back in history and in the history of Kingman AZ. Loved checking out the caboose. Volunteers are so gracious and add to the overall experience. Company from another state were very impressed. The efforts to procure all of the artifacts was so worth it. The... More
