The Arizona History Museum features interactive and traditional exhibits about southern Arizona’s dynamic past, including an underground copper mine, ranch and town life of the 1870s, Victorian-era period rooms, the archaeology of Tucson ’s downtown, an original stagecoach, and a 1923 Studebaker. Changing galleries depict a range of topics.
The museum regularly hosts public programs for all ages including a winter series of talks by reenactors of historical Arizona people. The building also houses an extensive library and archives that are used extensively to research family and general history.
The museum highlights that wide range of people who helped make southern Arizona the unique and diverse place that it is. The large front door was rescued from the old St Augustine Church in downtown Tuson.
