You would not expect this type of museum in a little town, but the folks here really pride themselves on their history. Be prepared to wait for a researcher. They will call one, but once they arrive, it's worth the wait. They do need to upgrade their internet, but the help is free and friendly. Buy some books on the way out. They have a good little collection to choose from.

Worth the stop, and stop in often when you pass through downtown Globe, get off the highway and travel down Broad Street. The museum features the late former Governor Rose Mofford's kachina collection, local artists, performances, great architect and lots of history

It was very educational but in a fun way. The history that you learn is more then u will get out of a book about arizona.

We stopped in this wonderful museum of the history of the local area because of the good reviews we read and we were not disappointed. The museum docents (Carl and Linda) were awesome and Linda had so much knowledge of all the contents of the museum and shared so much information. Thank you Linda for your dedication and the education you provided to our family.
