My first visit to the this venue, I wanted to see the exhibit "Footprints in the Desert," about Frank Lloyd Wright's impact on this area. It was very well done. I had no idea, however, what a fabulous collection of history was contained here. So much to see and learn - loved the history of copper mining. A real bargain for a $10 admission (for seniors). Easy parking, Highly recommended.

Upon walking in, I thought the prices were ridiculous. $12! But, when I continued to the exhibits, I understood why. This museum is so informative! Every gallery stores so much history, and it's amazing to find it all in one place. The upper galleries especially, because that's where most everything is. It is also amazing because in 3/4 of the upstairs, it feels like you actually are back in time! I recommend this museum to anyone and everyone!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here yesterday. Have lived in the valley for 30+ years and had never been there before yesterday. $10 for seniors (65+) and $12 for adults.

I was there for a end of the year celebration. It was great. I only had time to see some of it but it was really great. There is a lot of Arizona history, the good and the bad. I want to go back and see it all and have more time to spend reading all the information.
