  • This is a small museum, but it really is very nice and gives you lots of history on the Cave Creek area in the early days. It only takes about an hour.  more »
  • The staff are very nice, and can provide additional info on various historical displays. Locals who are newer to the area should stop by.  more »
  • Small museum; took 2 hours total but I like to read everything in the exhibits and we had a snack on the gazebo! 100% worth it. Staff where super pleasant. They where busy which made me happy to see. Lots of great books in the store. My 6yr old had fun playing with the hands on exhibits. $7 for adults; kids are free!
  • It's was closed! Apparently most of the summer. Would have been nice to have that on their website.
