The Ash Fork museum was very worthwhile to visit, very interesting, and had a very good docent guiding us through the museum. We learned a lot about the area with our visit. Glad we went there.

As you drive through tiny Ash Fork, you may think nothing ever happened here but you would be wrong. Once a thriving railroad hub, there's a lot to earn and this museum does it well.

I enjoy stopping at local museums and have seen many throughout the US. The Ash Fork Museum, I think, is exceptional. I spent well over an hour perusing the displays. The volunteer was quite knowledgeable and interesting. A real enjoyable place.
