If you are visiting Yuma, then this is an attraction in the north of town close to the Territorial Prison and Gateway Park.

There is a lot of historial information and many exhibits about the history of the Yuma area, the army and development of the town. If you have an interest in history, this is very much worth visiting.

Had a great time at the Quartermaster Depot. Trying to imagine how life was here at the turn of the century when temperatures pass the 110 degree mark. History brought back!!! I wish that more could be added to the exhibit since Yuma has so much history to share!!! As an overall experience I did enjoy learning tips and bits of Yuma!!! There is also a great little restaurant that takes the apperance of the Harvey Girls!,,, greattttttttt! I think they stop their service for the Summer, what a shame! Stop and try to imagine!!!!!

This is VERY easy to get to and worth the time if you're exploring Yuma. Here the Quartermaster Depot has original adobe buildings and some have the original furnishings. The park is quite nice ... and there is an special exhibit on Alcatraz. It's worht your time - and the $4 entry fee isn't too bad (get a Yuma Historic Riverfront brochure from your hotel and save a buck on admission!). They have an old fashioned pie and ice cream shoppe - we didn't try it, but the pies did look good.

Definitely a site to see and full of history but has the potential for an awful lot more. It's a big area but could do with more information and better displays. Worth a visit before you go to the Prison which is tons better

if you need to spend some time this is an interesting little museum with your typical historic relics from its era.
