This museum is well worth a visit. Several buildings from the earliest days of of Arizona are preserved and open to museum visitors. The museum staff is very knowledgable offering insights into building's history as well as local history. All of the displays are first rate. You can tell the community takes a lot of pride in this place. Since the museum visit is self guided, you can spend a little or a lot of time there depending on your schedule.

The grounds and displays are very well done and informative. I loved the gift shop which is an old victorian home that was relocated to the museum grounds and saved from demolition!

For only $5, you can browse artifacts from Arizona settlers! The re-telling of history is done very well. The museum is laid out on a walkable path that stops you at each major attraction. Docents are available to answer questions or tell stories. Everything is well preserved and explained. A great way to spend an hour or two while in Prescott!

Returning from the Grand Canyon to Phoenix we can through Prescott. Today it is a cold 40 degrees and steady rain. We used Trip Advisor and found this place. Our 12 and 9 year old children really enjoyed taking the quiz tour and getting a prize at the end. This museum is very educational and the staff are very nice and extremely knowledgable. Very cool to see the original Governors Mansion. We highly recommend this as a place to see.
