    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.

    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.
