Fodor's Review

The Arizona Historical Society operates this museum in a volcanic-rock building constructed in 1908. The structure was Coconino County's first hospital for the poor, and the current displays include one of the depressingly small nurses' rooms, an old iron lung, and a reconstructed doctor's office. Most of the exhibits, however, touch on more cheerful aspects of Flagstaff history—like road signs, farming machinery, and pioneer children's games.

The museum holds folk-crafts festivals in the summer, with blacksmiths, weavers, spinners, quilters, and candle makers. Some of their crafts are sold in the museum's gift shop. The museum is part of the Fort Valley Park complex, a wooded residential section at the northwest end of town.
