This place is one of Prescott's gems. Having lived here over 20 years, I've visited multiple times, but my last visit with a knowledgeable tour guide and a group of ladies was outstanding. It's great for all ages. Don't miss the picture that is made from human hair in one of the houses. And take some time to read of... More

The first Territorial capital of Arizona, Prescott boasts the best historical museum in the state. The Governor's Mansion is on it's original site and offers a look at the Arizona of 1864. There are other offerings such as the Fremont house, the Sharlot Hall building, the ranch house and the Transportation building.

It was only one hour before closing and we were warned. Great Sharlot Hall Theatre exhibits, three houses had docents with lots of information on local history and their spot. Beautifully furnished in the period and great story of the first governor's house.

This was my favorite building in the Sharlott historical complex. It was dear to my heart because I have ties to two Fremont Schools in the Midwest. Architect was a sawmill operator who had experienced wildfires more than once. So, every single room of this house has a door that opens to the outside. Probably handy in the hot Prescott... More

My bro just bought a second home in Prescott Valley so we're learning about the region together when we visit. Sharlot Hall tells a low-key history of this fascinating region. Set in several buildings where one is encouraged to take the walking tour, docents are always around to answer questions and steer you in the direction you're after. It's a... More

This was a very nice tour that allow us to go at our own rate. The guides were informative and helpful, but not over the top or trying to prove something. The tour lasted about an hour to an hour and a half. Admission was $9 for Adults, and $5 for seniors (maybe a little expensive for what it was),but... More

My wife and I visited the Sharlot Hall Museum after the Courthouse lighting in Prescott on December 3rd. Admission was $5.00 and came with some cookies and Apple Cider, which was welcome because it was a bit brisk that night. The museum has a number of buildings, not sure if actual or recreated on site that show the what Prescott... More

Not only did we learn about the area, Ms. Hall was quite a woman. There were a few historical buildings and some well done displays. Some of the docents were and some were a little overbearing with sharing information.

This museum is an impressive collection of buildings, artifacts and stories of territorial Arizona, particularly the Prescott area, as collected and curated by Sharlot Hall over a period of many decades. It is mostly an historical museum, with just a sprinkling of scientific, but needs something to tie it all together...to make it more cohesive. I came out with more... More
