We enjoyed the historical displays about Arizona and Prescott. The individuals volunteering were friendly and knowledgeable. They made the visit enjoyable and provided additional context as well as tidbits of information not included in the wonderful displays. We would visit again.

Have visited the museum twice since visiting Prescott over the last couple of years. Nice shaded grounds and interesting exhibits not far from the courthouse park. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
