Arizona Capitol Museum, Phoenix

(4.2/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
The Arizona Capitol Museum receives little funding from the State of Arizona for preservation, restoration and exhibitions. As a result the Arizona Capitol Museum Guild helps to support the Arizona Capitol Museum's mission statement of: Connecting people to Arizona government – Past and Present.

The Arizona Capitol Museum Guild does this through volunteerism, financial assistance, staff support and community involvement. The Arizona Capitol Museum Guild is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, that is able to accept tax deducible donations for the Arizona Capitol Museum, so that they may continue to provide a great free guest experience.

The Arizona Capitol Museum Guild also sponsors several museum activities, including but not limited to: Receptions, Special Events, Volunteer Activities, Artifact Conservation, Education and Exhibit Programs.

  • A good bit of AZ history can be seen here, including the silver service and other artifacts from the USS Arizona. 
  • I learned a great deal by going through this museum. You can tell a great deal of thought and purpose went into putting everything together! I was very impressed with everything there. 
  • Very nice free museum with all sorts of history. Nice that the repurposed the Capitol building for this.

  • The décor was amazing and very historically accurate one thing to mention is that they should do something about the pigeons and the bird defecation.
  • It's a great place for learning about Arizona's history. Guided tours are free; I'd suggest checking this place out. It's incredible! You can also sit in the rafters of the senate house and the legislative house situated in the buildings on either side of the museum. It's a great experience. Thanks to Sen. Smith and Reps. Finchem and Leach for the amazing behind-the-scenes tour you gave me and my family!
  • We didn't visit the museum because we were just interested in the building itself. In the hall is de Arizona seal made in tessallation. There is also a nice park in the front.
  • The Arizona Capitol Museum is the original building that housed the capitol. Being able to go into many areas that now house amazing items in the museums collection is very worthwhile. Spending time here was something that I look forward to doing again when I'm back in Phoenix, AZ. The ground floor wing to the left when you first walk in that focuses on the U.S. military was amazing. Very family oriented museum that had no cost to tour when I was there.
  • Ugly, disgusting place with extremely rude people. I do not recommend it to anyone that has a life.
