Pleasantly surprised with this museum. Much larger collection than I had anticipated finding! The staff, particularly the person at the admissions desk, was very friendly and helpful

I would have appreciated a small place to sit down and have something to drink. We went out to the car to have a Coke and sit; then continued on to see the rest of museum.

We thought we would be in and out in an hour. We spent almost 3 hours, and could have been there longer. Lots of neat information. Very interesting.

The young lady who was working the entrance seemed bored to be helping us and was rather rude.

From Our Editors

There’s little left in Tucson to suggest that back in the mid-19th-century the city served as the Southwest’s hub for highway robbers. But it's a fact that the area hosted a string of stagecoach holdups and served as the starting point for Wyatt Earp’s infamous vendetta ride. At the Arizona History Museum, relics stand testament to this harrowed past, including an original Concord stagecoach, not unlike those whose occupants were forced to surrender their valuables to roadside brigands. The museum doesn’t only explore infamy, though; it illuminates all the forces that took part in Tucson’s transition from Paleo-Indian hunting ground to Spanish colonial outpost to the commercial center it is today. Exhibits cover this vast span of time creatively, including a full-size replica of an underground mine that provides a glimpse into early-20th-century working conditions, hands-on exhibits that recall the day-to-day lives of Native Americans, and archaeology displays that detail the surrounding environment's history over the past 4,000 years.
