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 the local small museum and stop by.
This tour could take one hour or three, it depends on how much of the history you want to read about as you go through the rooms and the out-buildings of this old charitable care center. There are so many historical artifacts that we took about 2-1/2 hours because we wanted to see it all. The upstairs portion is done in timeline sequence which is excellent for realizing the way things have changed over the years. Don't miss the machine they used to give women permanents! It's upstairs and looks like a torture machine!!
Lots to see in this little museum and grounds. The building used to house the charity care hospital. It's well laid out with lots of information.
The building was a hospital. You can see the nurse's room with the original, 100 year old paint. There's an iron lung from 50+ years ago and an old switchboard.
Rooms upstairs cover the area by the decade. I especially enjoyed the Route 66 exhibit. Downstairs rooms have special exhibits. Be sure to go to the barn for the buggies and see the locomotive and other outdoor exhibits.
Note, there were no working public restrooms in the building when I was there. Be prepared to use the outside portable toilets.
Thank you for the positive review of Pioneer Museum. We apologize for the toilet inconvenience--utility workers were conducting minor maintenance on the water line outside of our property on the morning of your visit, and the water was turned off for about an hour. We are back to normal now!
