Arizona History Museum - Tucson

   Very nicely done exhibits and interesting artifacts including an actual stamp mill, a uniform that belonged to Santa Anna, and a Spanish Colonial silver chest, give details of ranching, mining, and other aspects of Arizona’s history. A small exhibit features Geronimo but Native American history is not well covered.

   Parking is validated if your vehicle can fit in the garage. If not, 2 hour, metered parking in available on the streets around the museum. We parked on 1st Street. The sidewalks and curb cuts are in good condition.  Museum  32.23313, -110.95749


  1. I stopped in Tuscan to see the Pima Air & Space museum. The next time I'm down that way I'll take a look at this one, I'd like to see a stamping mill.
    I camped at the BLM place just outside of town..

    1. It's quite a surprise to turn the corner in the museum and see an entire stamping mill. I think it's really just about 1/4 of the stamping mill but it's still pretty impressive that they transported it and set it up in the museum.

    2. It's always neat to see real life in a museum, especially big chunks of real life!
