Arizona Capitol Museum, Phoenix

4.2
#8 of 14 in Museums in Phoenix
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • This museum was my goal today and I was not disappointed. I could have easily have spent more time there. As it was, I took a cursory walk through and it was a good couple of hours. The 'Merci Train' ...  more »

  • Interesting opportunity to view a historic state capitol building. Good for groups of all ages, with motorcoach parking directly in front. Could use a walking guide booklet to facilitate more info.
  • Our family enjoyed a visit. Easy parking, beautiful grounds and a remarkable building. Period furnishings and a lot of history. Worth the time.
  • Most state capitols have walking tours of their active capitol building. Phoenix is unique in that the tour is of the former building; the active government buildings have been built up and around the original state house and it has been converted to a lovely museum. However, you can view the current house and senate chambers (each located in their own buildings on either side of the grounds) from the galleries -- just ask a guide or security guard. Arizona's state house is one of the smaller in the USA, but is charming and they've converted it into a fantastic museum covering many different areas of the state's history. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and were pleased to see Arizona citizens participating in government and exercising their right to protest.
  • It's a great place to visit and learn the history of the state of Arizona. The settings are easy to read, to access and to feel about the past. The build is awesome, highly artistically design and well maintained.
  • The first floor is pretty amazing, but as you go up it loses quality. Decent look at the interesting and colorful history of AZ.
