  • Main museum was closed due to rain (!) when we got there, which was a bit surprising as it had only sprinkled that morning. I had been looking forward to seeing it (I love pioneer history) and was pre...  more »
  • It was a good couple hours. I have always wanted to stop. We were disappointed the telephone museum was not open.  more »
  • This was a chance to see some real homes/businesses from around the Phoenix area. Seeing the accommodations the settlers endured brings home how lucky we are to live with today's comforts. The buildin...  more »
  • Fun place for anyone. The museum grounds host Civil War reenactments a few times a year which are great to watch. They bring out real muskets and cannons. They even have a wedding venue with a church.
  • I thought this was really nice, so many historical homes to see all on one property. It's definitely rustic to visit but It's a day's worth of signt seeing if you're interested in the pioneer times.
  • I felt the experience was quite disappointing. According to what was presented on the advertisements, I was expecting more fun for the family. There was an admission fee but also an additional cost for any activity you wanted to do. I'd much rather pay a couple extra dollars per ticket and have all the activities be included. It felt like they were desperate for my money. Most of the buildings were locked up. The ones that weren't locked up had presenters who seemed knowledgeable but had difficulty relating to the kids. Overall I would recommend passing up this "attraction" and opt for something different
  • Was a good experience, as many have said I’m glad they managed to rescue this bit of history from destruction. Sadly most of the buildings are close to falling apart and they don’t let you tour them due to the fear of “theft” according to the attendant at the front. Still a good few hours walking around (BRING WATER!!) and seeing bits of history that you would otherwise not see.
  • Really in bad shape. Too bad, it was a great historical visit. Not worth the money now.
