  • The history in S. Arizona is so much more than what you see in the media, for example, Why these forts were placed way out here. Apaches and Mexican Bandits, that's why. The property was legally purchased from Mexico and belongs to the U.S.A. Funny how some things don't seem to change.
  • The gift shop is wonderful. Great staff, all volunteers. Great place to buy gifts for everyone. Wish they would reopen the upstairs exhibits.. they were great.
  • Interesting history of the buffalo soldier and cavalry life at Ft. Huachuca. Definitely worth the visit. For those who do not already have one, visitors will need to stop at the main gate to obtain a no-cost pass to get on post.
  • Beautiful museum, friendly curators, very informative. Really enjoyed it.
  • I started off with the uniform display which is expansive and well documented. I moved onto another building where they had a very good display of UAVs and their use through conflicts. Found the museum well maintained and lots of helpful people working there. A good place to stop if your in the area.
