The museum is exactly what it says it is...a museum about the Wells Fargo company and its intimate connection to the history of our Western states, especially during the gold booms. Not a destination place, but worth a stop if you are in the general...More

This is a little hard to find, but worth it. Wells Fargo has collected over 100 years of history and tells the story very well. See the stage coach, guns, and period pieces. Fun

I came here on a Saturday looking forward to a bit of history about Wells Fargo's contribution to our westward expansion, but they were closed. I guess there aren't any TOURISTS that come to visit on a weekend in Phoenix.

This place is a great thing to do for about 30 minutes to an hour. It's free. It's a small museum about the history of stage coaches and Wells Fargo. It's actually pretty interesting. One of the exhibits tells you if you find a hidden...More

100 W Washington is the address for the Wells Fargo office tower. The Museum is attached to it but faces the street to the north - Adams. Thus the two addresses.
