Sharlot Hall Museum Review

Local history is documented at this remarkable museum. Along with the original ponderosa pine log cabin, which housed the territorial governor, and the museum, named for historian and poet Sharlot Hall, the parklike setting contains three fully restored period homes and a transportation museum. Territorial times are the focus, but natural history and artifacts of the area's prehistoric peoples are also on display. Kids under 13 get in free.

    Sharlot Hall Museum Review

    One of the most informational and interesting museum I have ever been to is the Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona. Though there are various activities and interactive sites to see, my family choose to just take the tour through the museum. There was no tour guide, but the freedom to explore the building and discuss the artifacts with your group made the experience fun and with the help of the informational plaques, also interesting. The museum showcased a variety of artifacts and gave historical insight on all aspects of Arizonan culture and history. It included facts about both Native American history in Arizona as well as pioneer history. The museum is names after Sharlot Hall who is a well known activist and poet in Arizona’s history. Overall, the Sharlot Hall Museum was very interesting and helped me to understand the history and culture of my home state. I recommend the museum to anyone who lives in Arizona.
