Arizona Historical Society, Arizona History Museum Reviews & Ratings
The staff is amazingly helpful as well as knowledgeable about all of the exhibits.
The museum was beautifully organized despite not being chronological. There are unique exhibits depicting Tucson in 1870s and a mining hall, which probably are the best way to portray day-to-day living. Highly recommend for anyone around the university having a couple of hours in hand !
Hello Arizona! Look at your history. I came here by accident while on my whirlwind tour of Blue Star Museums. Thankfully this awesome museum of massive historical proportions was a participating member. Thank you for this amazing program to expose military members to the arts. There were many exhibits detailing the state of Arizona. I also learned about the Studebaker car named after Arizona Sheriffs. Something I did not know. The exhibits cater to adults as much as children. Many items on view were relevant to the great state history. There were also many activities for kids to participate in to include a mine recreation, and historical play areas. I would recommend this museum for all ages to experience a trip back into the history of Arizona.
Anybody who has an interest in US history like I do should come and visit the Arizona History Museum and learn about the role of Arizona the foundation and securing of Arizona as a part of the United States although there are sad parts the imprisonment of Geronimo and Native American tribes the internment of Americans of Japanese descent they have all played a role in the tapestry of our country. Fascinating exhibit on how mining; gold silver other minerals played in the creation of Arizona
The only reason i gave it one star is because i remember when it only caust a donation to get in now ten dollars really. I'm not saying it's not worth it but maby 5.00 the most
