I've driven by this place so many times and had yet to go in during my many visits to Flagstaff. It's not a wham bam museum, just simple and interesting. And the price is right at a few dollars. Good for an hour or two...More

I thought this museum presented a great, balanced history of Flagstaff. Compared to the Riordan Mansion (which is interesting but focuses mostly on the wealthy citizens of Flagstaff), this is a modest museum with honest exhibits. Not flashy but is informative and the staff was...More

This museum had a bit of a lot of things in it, and no cohesive theme. Each room is set up differently, so you have a kids room, a display on polio with an iron lung machine, a bit of history on Flagstaff, a few...More

I was expecting to see more at the Pioneer Museum. It may have been more interesting if there were staff on the grounds outside providing more information. To learn more one had to pay an entrance fee into the building.

Great selection of artifacts from early 1900s ranging from medical to cowboy items. The focus is on actual items and not on a bunch of written information. Even has a little room full of hands on things for kids. Also there is an old train,...More

Take the tour it's worth it. Lots of artifacts inside and you can roam around outside, even on a locomotive. Fun little stop.

Sometimes good things do come in small packages and this is one of those times. This museum, which is housed in what was the hospital for the indigent, is very interesting. The exhibits are kind of random and include information about the settling of Flagstaff...More

My daughter and I visited the museum on a whim while driving through to the Grand Canyon. There are so many interesting items in this small museum that intrigued both me and my 8-year-old daughter. The people that work there (I think I remember that...More
