I’ve been through some museums and seen some creative ones, but I’ve never seen one that digs so deep into the story and history of copper, something we all have within us. The entrance people are very knowledgeable and will answer any of your questions!...More

I have visited museums in +40 countries, and this one really rocks. This year visited the Glass Museum in Corning NY, which I found very good but for some reason, this one 5 or 10 times smaller turned to be a fantastic experience. It is...More

Hi, Thank you for visiting! The Copper Art Museum displays about 5700 artifacts of copper, which is very remarkable for a small town. Copper is the only metal that has been at our side since day one of our civilization and also has been at...More

We were looking for one more thing to do before we left the area. Someone asked if we had seen the Arizona Copper Art Museum. It's on Main Street in Clarkdale, very easy to find. The museum is located in the old original high school...More

Thank you for your visit. The kitchen room is top shelf at this museum, displaying close to 1000 artifacts made of copper. Your review is very helpful as it is a testimonial of what others can expect of this small town museum. Thanks again

This museum has a tremendous collection of art and artifacts demonstrating coppersmithing from all over the world. Good rudimentary description of the geology and metallurgy of copper and its 11,000 year history of human use. Well worth the time and money.

I figured I’d learn a little more about our local history. In the West that means 150 years until it jumps to ancient ruins and lore. The AZ Copper Museum covers that and much much more. Housed in the old high school building, the large...More

A nice educational overview of copper mining in the area, and throughout history as well. Three interesting exhibit rooms - and then about five much less so filled with all sorts of pots and pans and stuff one can make with copper. ~$8 entry fee.
