Very well done for a small town museum, especially very early history exhibits. Original Governor's mansion (cabin) and other buildings moved to the property. Quite informative.

Excellent little museum and staff. A glimpse into the history of Prescott back before Arizona was a state and Prescott was the territorial capital.

I learned a lot about the local history and thoroughly enjoyed my time there walking through all the old homes and exhibits. The price to get in was very reasonable as well. Allow a couple of hours to see everything.

Our VRBO is less than a block from the Sharlot Hall Museum. It is a definite must see. If you were visiting Prescott Arizona. Arizona has such a rich history, and the Sharlot Hall Museum has done a wonderful job of capturing and presenting it.

This is our second time going to the museum and realized how much we missed the first time. Take your time and listen to the people in each area to help you understand where you are and what you are looking at.
