I learned a lot about the local history and thoroughly enjoyed my time there walking through all the old homes and exhibits. The price to get in was very reasonable as well. Allow a couple of hours to see everything.

Our VRBO is less than a block from the Sharlot Hall Museum. It is a definite must see. If you were visiting Prescott Arizona. Arizona has such a rich history, and the Sharlot Hall Museum has done a wonderful job of capturing and presenting it.

This is our second time going to the museum and realized how much we missed the first time. Take your time and listen to the people in each area to help you understand where you are and what you are looking at.

Nothing mind-blowing here, but it’s a good place to visit for learning about area history. I did the self-guided tour in a little under an hour. The grounds and exhibit buildings are well maintained and easily accessible. Parking is in a lot at the corner...More

Great place to visit and learn. Beautiful grounds with plenty of history and photo opportunities. The reason for 4 $ is due to the cost of the museum.
