Get a real view of Flagstaff's history in this unusual building. The walk through items from past decades makes me feel old! I owned some of those items! Take time to walk the buildings on the property. Makes you appreciate how we live today. Support...More

There are hours of fun with outdoor and indoor exhibits of everything from the largest farm machinery and trains you can walk in to the smallest tools of pioneer life. I had the pleasure of talking with the Director Dr. Bill Peterson whose enthusiasm was...More

The Pioneer Museum costs $ 6 for admissions and it used to be a hospital. So you learn about the different instruments, machines used in 1800 hundreds. For example you can see the first x ray machine and a lung machine that was used for...More
