This museum is an impressive collection of buildings, artifacts and stories of territorial Arizona, particularly the Prescott area, as collected and curated by Sharlot Hall over a period of many decades. It is mostly an historical museum, with just a sprinkling of scientific, but needs something to tie it all together...to make it more cohesive. I came out with more... More

The Sharlot Hall Museum is a must see for all who make the pilgrimage to see Prescott! I took my daughter and she loved the gift store and old buildings.

I've been to the museum several times and have enjoyed seeing the history of Arizona. They have changing exhibits and the yard is especially beautiful when the roses are blooming!

Walked to this museum from the Hassayampa Inn and truly enjoyed our hour and a half. The exhibits were interesting and the location was great! Historic buildings on site and informative staff and volunteers. Entry fee was reasonable. A nice way to spend part of an afternoon while in Prescott.

This place was fun and everyone was very knowledgeable about the history. I didn't know that Prescott was the capital once. Some of the buildings are the real deal. Blocks away from Whisky row take a walk into some great History.

My wife and I went up to Prescott to see the Arizona Metal of Honor Recipients display at the Sharlot Hall Museum. Although we were here for a specific reason, which, by the way, was excellent, we toured the rest of the buildings on the grounds and were quite pleased by the experience. Being able to see how the original... More

I love this place. It has several buildings representing different periods and places in Arizona history. Only part of the new Native exhibit was finished but it looks like it will be great. The temporary exhibit on Arizona Medal of Honor recipients was interesting. All the docents were friendly and informed. The grounds are lovely. I enjoyed just sitting a... More

We spent about 2 hours touring the grounds and various buildings of this museum. Had we not been pressed for time (museum closed at 4pm), we would have spent at least 1 or 2 more hours. There's a lot of great Arizona history to see here.

I was expecting a simple museum with some interesting outside buildings. Instead the museum was bigger than thought and the buildings outside provide so much information on early life in Prescott. A must see place just blocks away from Whiskey Row and Town Square.
