  • Very interesting! We learned so much about the history of the cavalry. I would definitely recommend a visit. Also if you can, be sure to ask Rae (museum director) questions. He is full of a wealth of information.
  • This museum contains an excellent collection of horse soldier material, but it fails to tell a story. I would recommend that one cabinet be given over to a special display for 3-6 months and then rotated to something else. There are so many horse soldier stories to be told, the rotation would bring back their audience which they really need.
  • Awesome museum very knowledgeable young lady giving us a tour. Very pleasant also. A must see for all you soldiers and vetrans.
  • What a great fine here in Tucson.
  • Beautifully displayed artifacts of another time. A must for people of all ages. Few people are aware that Arizona was, in part, involved in the Civil War.

Where to stay in Tucson

To discover the tranquility of the Sonoran Desert, book your stay at an inn just a short drive from Tucson. Staying on the outskirts of the city allows you quick and easy access to some of Arizona's wildest areas, though it does require a car if you wish to enjoy Tucson's shops and restaurants. For the ultimate in indulgence, consider one of the city's award-winning luxury resorts, which feature full-service spa and fitness centers, championship golf courses, lighted tennis courts, and indoor swimming pools.
