Small museum, but very interesting. Pictures, many old items-some of them never seen, cute atmosphere.

This is very small museum and very well maintained. One elderly couple was very warm in receiving us. We liked their hospitality.

We stopped here to escape the heat and cool down in the A/C. I was pleasantly surprised with the number and quality of the exhibits. This is a good stop to make.

Small museum with some interesting photographs of old Scottsdale but not much else. Probably worth a quick visit (it's free) while in Old Scottsdale.

This is a small museum in Scottsdale but is a nice stop to add if you are visiting the Old Town area. Go back to the time when Scottsdale was nothing but ranches. Quite different from now! A neat slice of history.

My wife was thrilled to see old Scottsdale High School memorabilia from her time at the school. Many interesting items for a look at local history.

Lived in Scottsdale most of my life, but hadn't been there in 25 years. Took my friend to see Old Town, and stopped here. Was informative without being boring, varied displays, docents were friendly, informative and so charming.
