Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute, the various buildings offer a great deal of the history of this locale to include mining, pioneers, the first Governor's Mansion, period transportation, etc. This is a stop to be sure to make. Even the staff members are especially helpful.

Several cabins/buildings to see. Also have a small museum which was nice to walk through. Staff was friendly and helpful. I recommend spending 1-2 hours here.

A great way to spend time learning about Arizona history. We chose to go on a windy day when being outside was difficult. All the different buildings held their history and fascination. You will not be disappointed!

This museum is really several put together. There is a main building, governor's mansion, several area homes, schoolhouse, train station, plus. The map directs you from the earliest humans living in the area, to more modern days.

The museum is quite interesting with exhibits, docents giving talks and a short movie explaining the historical significance. The grounds have 9 different buildings. It is well worth the entrance fee.

Very well displayed, lots to see. Governors mansion was closed, due to replacing the flooring. Well stocked gift shop. Highly recommended.
