  • This private gallery is free and open to the public. It has a phenomenal collection of over 3000 items of classic western art (oils, bronzes, kachinas, baskets, guns), many illustrative of historical events. A quick walk through will take at least two hours, so plan on returning. There are chairs and sofas that allow a bit if a rest.
  • Tells the story of a small town growing up, great history here!
  • the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable of the museum. take your time to explore the wonders of every room as it tells you about the town of Gilbert and all the amazing pioneers that transformed Gilbert into the best town to live in
  • Very impressive museum and very well done. Definitely recommend seeing the movie and it enhances the experience. Museum is divided between European and Pacific battles, tells very personal stories.
  • Amazing place. Lots to learn here. Make sure you check out the miniature trains when you come.
