I have visited this museum several times and always wished I had allowed more time! There are quality exhibits to interest a wide range of interests and you get a good sense of what it must have been like in Prescott’s early years.

We enjoyed the historical displays about Arizona and Prescott. The individuals volunteering were friendly and knowledgeable. They made the visit enjoyable and provided additional context as well as tidbits of information not included in the wonderful displays. We would visit again.
