Hadn't been here for 5 years and loved it even more this time. There is a very large display of rare Pima Indian baskets! That was my favorite part but it is all just amazing.

This museum was definitely not what we expected from this small town! We took the tour included with our admission and the docent was very knowledgeable and informative!! The artwork was more than impressive! A definite must to visit when you’re in Wickenburg!!

I would suggest starting in the 'upper' museum. This one is the history of the town, its namesake, mines, and the area. Headsets are provided so as you walk through you are told about what you are seeing. The downstairs is setup like the old...More
