A self guided tour with examples of early life and plenty of history. The buildings on the grounds were excellent examples of the pioneering spirit that settled the area. The train was pretty awesome as well!

This museum offers a casual, go at your own pace stroll through the history of Flagstaff and surrounding area. It's loaded with artifacts and readings that keeps your attention. The outside grounds has interesting exhibits to visit as well. Worth the money.
