This was an excellent museum by itself, but especially for a town the size of Prescott. It consists of several buildings on several acres of land. Be sure to visit all of them. There were well informed docents in many of the buildings. The museum recalls a time when Prescott was the capital of the Arizona Territories. I would highly... More

More of a living history museum, this facility hosts a number of events during the year, including an Indian Market, wine tasting and food pairings ,with local vendors and entertainment. With docents in period dress, the museum demonstrates facets of pioneer living and cooking at various times of the year, including Christmas season. The site has historical cabins and houses,...

I had been to Prescott several times before, but had not visited the Sharlott Hall Museum before- shame on me. This is the first place to go in Prescott! There is a great cross-section of AZ history to see and hear about here. Something for everyone. Their docents are extremely friendly and knowledgeable - really help put everything in context...

What a wonderful museum. The grounds are very pretty and easily accessible. From beginning to end a delightful trip through history. The various building had docents available to answer any questions and provide insightful information. A must see!

I found the museum a bit disappointing. It is Sharlot Hall and one section dedicated to her. The rest is a bunch of AZ information almost like a state information. Wasn't my interest.. Some other Prescott things. I remember a time I visited long ago with jewelry, letters, clothing and a story of HER life. I can visit other museums... More

This is a super venu. We attended the annual crafts week end. Many outstanding exhibits, displays and in many volunteers in period costume. I especially liked the honyed biscuits. Also the mountain men, early military exhibits, carvers, knitters, weavers etc. We were asked to fill out a raffle ticket, waste of time, right! NO! I was the big winner, a... More

We enjoyed the craft fair and historical reinactments. The Native American history is treated with respect and honor. Let's face it, the times were hard and Manifest Destiny gave the European invaders justification for stealing land that the indigenous people were quite adapted to. Time will tell if modern technology and culture will be able to endure and persist in... More

The Sharlot Hall Museum is a "must see" if you have time while in Prescott. Prescott was the original Arizona Territorial Capital (before it was moved to Phoenix). This museum, started by Sharlot Hall, is a wonderful collection of artifacts, buildings etc. from Arizona's territorial days. Arizona history is on full view at this museum and you will not be...
