We visits lots of museums and this is one of our favorites! The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly! Walking through this place is like stepping back in time!

Being myself a volunteer at a local small museum where I live, this place did my day. Everything well explained and presented in an educational format. Recommend to visit their home page for better understanding of what you will find. The town cronology in the second level is very good. A must see if you are interested in history.

The Pioneer Museum is about the first setttlers who established the Flagstaff area. It was also heavily focused on the immigrant experience. There were parts of the museum that we found to be very interesting while other parts were very lackluster. It is a good place to visit for an hour to learn a bit more about the area, but only to a certain extent.

They have some great collections. We enjoyed our tour of all the history that is displayed. Need at least two hours to see everything. Very nice staff

The entire museum and grounds are well laid out and easy to follow. The app adds additional information and videos which were fascinating. I especially liked the rooms upstairs in the main building which were displayed by decade with a chart of comparisons through the decades.
