  • The Arizona State Capitol Museum is well worth a visit. Admission is free and you can do self-guided tours or ask for help at the information desk. There are multiple levels in the building which can be toured. Exhibits include items recovered from the USS Arizona shipwreck and much much more. There is also a gift shop and a coffee shop on the first floor.
  • Spent half a day there. Great history of Arizona. Don't skip the memorials out front. Impressive
  • The old capitol building with the copper dome is a nice museum with both permanent and changing displays. Visit former offices and legislative chambers. Enjoy the beautiful architecture and the giant state seal mosaic. The memorial park across from the museum is worth half a days visit on its own.
  • This outdoor museum of memorials dedicated to Arizona's fallen in support of our country and communities is a great place to visit. You are provided a lovely path to stroll and learn a little history. Public parking is part of the park, so its very easy to access.
  • The museum is free (donations) are appreciated. The exhibits are very mixed most are related to the building & it's original function but some are not - those that aren't didn't fit well for me. The gift shop is very sparse compared to shops in other museums.
