We spend hours on the grounds learning about the importance of this facility in the early history of Arizona. Thank you for providing such interesting information about the military presence in the old west.

This museum is worth the visit. Nice displays to explain the history of the river area of Yuma. Bring water if you are visiting during hot weather.
