Refurbished beautifully. The history is good to know and this is a clear vision of life in that time. The tour was great fun.

Sharlot Hall is not your typical stuffy museum. Home of the original Arizona state governor's mansion, this site is an awesome way to learn about the old west. The grounds are filled with huge shade trees and a large rose garden. Exhibits are in several historic buildings which are fun to explore and think about how life was different "way... More

We had only planned to spend an hour or so here but in the end spent over 2 hours at the various building and displays. Very interesting local history presented in various buildings on the property. Plenty of free parking.

A well managed local attraction featuring Prescott's early history and a varied collection of early Prescott buildings incl. the original Governor's residence from Territorial days. The museum store features a large supply of Arizona/Prescott history volumes and should not be missed. Sharlot Hall Museum hosts a wide variety of local events, from folk music festivals to Native American art shows.... More

Visiting Sharlot Hall Museum was a highlight of our recent stay in Prescott ~ during July 4th weekend ~ which, by the way, is just one of several weekends and ways in which the former Territorial capitol celebrates the State's culture and historical moments. From the prehistoric exhibits (the giant molar of a mastodon will drop your own jaw!) to... More

I enjoyed the docents - they knew quite a bit about the various buildings that are on the site and the history of the area.

If you are planning a trip to Prescott AZ, be sure to put the Sharlot Hall Museum on your agenda. Once you're inside the gates and the docent hands you a map, you'll quickly realize the 9 treasures awaiting you. From a gallery of well presented stone-age era exhibits, to the oldest log cabin, a fine collection of transportation including... More
