Have visited the museum twice since visiting Prescott over the last couple of years. Nice shaded grounds and interesting exhibits not far from the courthouse park. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.

Very well done for a small town museum, especially very early history exhibits. Original Governor's mansion (cabin) and other buildings moved to the property. Quite informative.
