Very well organized contents. Very interesting information. No gift shop. Liked it just like that. Sometimes that can be a distraction. You can always find copper jewelry in all these towns.

This is an unexpected gem. It is housed in an old school in Clarkdale and is truly unique. We found it accidentally and were entranced with its displays and history.

We took a trip to Clarkdale while visiting Sedona. Such a cute, quiet town with a lot of restoring going on. One of the store owners recommended going to this copper museum. We toured the museum with a docent which I highly recommend. My children...More
