Accessing and securing water is a major concern for every city in the deserts of the southwest. Fountain Hills, Arizona is no exception and the exhibits in the museum cover the city’s need for water and the greater need of Phoenix and Tucson which led to the construction of a 336 mile canal from the Colorado River to the middle of the state. Other exhibits cover Native American, mining and ranching history. The museum courtyard has a nice collection of sculptures.
The museum is accessible.
