Museums & Galleries

Officially operated by the Arizona National Guard Historical Society, the museum exhibits preserved items and artifacts on the history of Arizona's military. The facility is housed in a historical adobe building, which was built in 1936 and used as a shop by German prisoners during World War II. On display are vehicles, uniforms, mementos and artillery items spanning time periods from the Spanish conquerors to the more current Desert Storm. Included are exhibits from the Korean conflict, Vietnam and the Spanish-American Wars. Interesting ones include a diorama depicting an underground escape by German prisoners of war and an army helicopter used during the Vietnam War. Admission is free but donations are encouraged.
