  • Went few months ago with my hubby and 3 kids 5, 7, & 9. We all had a great time walking around and looking at all the old buildings and different things there. We spent about 2ish hours. Definitely a place for mornings or cooler time of year, but is a great place to stop by. My kids still talk about wanting to go back again.
  • I recently visited pioneer. Last time I was there was 5 years ago. I was upset because only thing that had been done, since I was last there. Was they painted the church. Alot of buildings are in need of repair. They aren't doing anything to actually repair. The school house is in horrible condition. Roof has holes in it, where birds fly in and out. Leaving droppings every where. Even on furniture. It's a shame, no one even cares to dust or clean, in any of the buildings. Dust is thick. I was really upset to see the dressmakers shop. They have at least 20 or more reproduction dolls displayed. I know because I've collected antique dolls for more than 40 years. I feel reproductions have no place in a museum. I saw many other reproductions, crocks and dishes. I feel this could be a lot more fun, place to visit, if they would take more pride in trying to preserve, these old buildings. Along time ago, they actually use to have horses, and cows, pigs, and stuff you would see.
  • I thought this place was very nice. I believe its intention was to show you sort of how life was 100 years ago in Arizona, but while you could almost get into the feel of it, the mood is broken by the lack of upkeep. While it was very educational, and there were lots of neat things to see, I felt a lack of passion.
  • Great history here. Great for kids who want to learn a little background on Phoenix.
  • Nice little living history museum!
