Worth the stop, and stop in often when you pass through downtown Globe, get off the highway and travel down Broad Street. The museum features the late former Governor Rose Mofford's kachina collection, local artists, performances, great architect and lots of history

We called in at this museum en-route from Phoenix to Show Low & am glad we did. Good displays regarding Globe & surrounding area. There is a small shop & clean restrooms. The staff were friendly & helpful. All in all well worth the visit.
