It is a small place, but it has so much information. It is worth a stop if you plan on visiting many parks in the Verde Valley.

Interesting little museum. With all the fantastic archaeological sites in the Verde Valley,that is just enough. Seems like things are really happening there. I made a just a quick stop to look around but the people were helpful and knowledgeable. Make this your first stop if are taking in the archaeological sites. Conveniently located right in "downtown" Camp Verde. it may be a bit hard to find since it is deeply buried (no pun intended) at the back of a strip mall -- just look for Thank's a Latte
Espresso Cafe on the main street and it is just behind it (having breakfast at the cafe is where I heard about the museum).
