This museum presents visitors with the interesting history of the riverboat captains and there wives. This is a small museum with a small intrance fee. A must visit when you come to Yuma.

We went to the Sanginetti House because it was the starting place for the trolley tour of historic Yuma. The house was very well done but the star of the show is the trolley tour. It doesn't take you far but the guide is fascinating....More
