As the state’s oldest historical museum, this repository of all things Arizonan is a treasure-trove for the history buff. If you’ve never explored a real mine, you can do the next best thing by exploring the museum’s full-scale reproduction of an underground mine tunnel. You’ll see an assayer’s office, miner’s tent, stamp mill, and blacksmith’s shop in the mining exhibit. A transportation exhibit displays stagecoaches and the horseless carriages that revolutionized life in the Southwest, while a range of temporary exhibits give a pretty good idea of what it was like back then.
