This is a very interesting open air museum. It is well maintained and all the volunteers were very knowledgeable and interesting. Although you could probably go through in an hour, we spent about two hours and went through all the buildings. It is located close to the main square in Prescott.

Sharlot Hall Museum is a wonderful slice-of-life of the old West. Just remember to check out their hours; they are not open 7 days a week. Go when they have one of their special events, especially. They have events with historic recreators. They also have special talks and sales.

This was a pleasant surprise in Prescott. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk through the early Arizona houses. The docents/staff were very friendly and informative. Definitely take an hour of your trip to visit here!

Great place to learn about the history of the area. Helpful, friendly staff loves to tell the stories of the area in an interesting way, enough to keep both an 8 and 15 year old's attention. Make this a "must stop" on your trip plan!

Sharlot Hall Plaza Museum is a really a collection of a few building examples of Prescott's past with the exception of the first AZ Territorial Governor's log cabin which is not only the oldest example of AZ governmental history but is located where it was originally constructed. Sharlot M. Hall is attributed with the preservation of this important example of... More

Sharlot Hall Museum is the place to start your trip if your coming to Prescott. You will learn a lot about the town and surronding area when you visit the Museum. The people who work there can answer all of your questions and they are super friendly.

4 of us were able to spend about 1 hour before previous commitment meeting. A couple of us had been there before and it was a new experience for two others. We really enjoyed sharing this visit.
