Good museum.

Enjoyed. Very well done. Much information and history on the Kingman area. Attended via a "cultural pass" from the Sedona library.

Full of donations of special collections by locals, this museum was a real surprise. Especially enjoyed the barbed wire collection display and the plants that create natural dyes. Lots of sweet displays. Very "old school" museum like. Such a treat not to view sterile exhibits! Be sure to catch this when you are in Kingman!!!!! By the way, the cost... More

I wasn't expecting this museum to be as good as it was. It was fairly large and someone put a lot of work and effort into this museum, pretty extensive displays and information. There is a lot of interesting things on display, including the hand painted portraits of the presidents as you walk in. There is a variety of displays,... More

Much bigger than what it looks from road. Very interesting and tells the history of the area with lots of interesting exhibits. Well worth the $4 entrance fee.

It only costs $4 to enter (seniors $3 60+). You also can visit the Route 66 Museum with your admission. I enjoyed the mining displays . It gives you the history of the area.

Of the two museums located within a block of each other, I definitely thought this was better. There is a wealth of information about the evolution of the area from the time of the original inhabitants to recent times. If you don't know much about western history this is a great way to learn.

Very interesting array of displays, covering local personalities (native son, Andy Devine) and memorabilia, paintings, pottery, and textiles. (Please don't miss the silk wedding gown!) There are also natural history items, mining and geologic information, furniture, household items, photos. This museum is a treasure! We really enjoyed our visit.

This was part of a package price this museum, Bonelli house and Powerhouse Visitor Centre. It was interesting but they had a room of presidents and first ladies and I didn't see the relevance to the area. It is worth the tour and reasonable cost with the other two locations added. It gives you history of the are and the... More
