Reviewed September 2, 2011

nice, easy, interesting museum and building. spend as much time or as little as you wish. Drive past the other old officer's houses and envision this military base in its hey day as part of the old west. Army stuff, maps, photos, memoirs, medical instruments (there's a VA hospital @ Ft. Whipple still) and you get to see the interior of one of the officer's houses (which the musum is in)

“Local Military and hospital history”
Reviewed May 11, 2009

A converted 1905(?) officers quarters houses two floors of exhibits. First floor tells the story of Fort Whipple thru the late 1890's. Second floor continues the history or the fort and then as a Army hospital and then a VA hospital. Docent was very knowledgeable.
