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

Your entry fee at any one of the three (Mohave Museum of History, Route 66 Museum, and Bonnelli House) will get you into the other two. The Mohave Museum was interesting to walk through and see the different exhibits. Nothing really hands on for kids, so it is probably more interesting to adults.

This Museum offers an array of displays including Indian displays, the movie star Andy Devine Displays, old time western displays, modern displays of the presidents and their First Ladies including some of the clothes they wore as well as some other female visitors to the White House. There's a gift shop with something for everyone to enjoy such as soaps,... More

They were very helpful when we (my daughter and I needed to do some research in the local paper as far back as was available at the time. They have some very interesting displays. The museum is small and well maintained. We were there doing research and we did not find the info. Not the museum's fault. We were looking... More

I thought this was going to be about American Indians, it was the name of the county. So it had a historical perspective for the area. It was neat to walk the museum and see so many interesting things. And I learned how Chloride town down the road got its name....so check it out. Driving I kept wondering about things... More
