I really enjoyed the museum. It's free, but they appreciate donations. It's only open Monday through Friday.

The Ash Fork museum was very worthwhile to visit, very interesting, and had a very good docent guiding us through the museum. We learned a lot about the area with our visit. Glad we went there.

Went there on a Friday, the boson Will was friendly and informative. A great history of Ash Fork including the school room area. There were pictures of my mom and other artifacts. They also have a fantastic kachina exhibit. Sadly, many of the historic buildings were demolished or burnt down. But the replicas of the old Ash Fork from 40s... More

As you drive through tiny Ash Fork, you may think nothing ever happened here but you would be wrong. Once a thriving railroad hub, there's a lot to earn and this museum does it well.

This town is actually a sad example of what happened when I-40 came about. I'm not sure if I would drive a great distance to see this, but if you are interested in exploring Route 66 near here anyway, you should make a stop if you have a little bit of time. You have to actually get on and off... More

I enjoy stopping at local museums and have seen many throughout the US. The Ash Fork Museum, I think, is exceptional. I spent well over an hour perusing the displays. The volunteer was quite knowledgeable and interesting. A real enjoyable place.

Just wanted to stretch my legs but ended up staying at this amazing place over an hour. The history of Ash Fork was curated so well I had to spend time at almost every exhibit, So interesting how a new highway (interstate 40) can change a community over the years. The little bits oh history about the people from the... More

Really excellent, in a 1920s building originally used for the construction of Route 66. Do try the Shuffleboard Game.

We had wanted to visit this Museum last year, but ran out of time. Today ( 8/11), we had planned on going to Sedona, but it was raining quite heavily, so decided to drive up to Ash Fork instead. The trip from Prescott took just over one hour. Found the Museum quite easily, as there are many signs out pointing... More
