Your Museum Experience

The Museum’s interior exhibits have four areas; Central Ansbaugh Auditorium, the Archaeology Wing, the History Wing, and Mini-Wing.

Exiting the building through the Mini-Wing, you will find the Outdoor Exhibits. These include ranch equipment, the gazebo, the first church of Cave Creek, and the last known original Tubercular Cabin in Arizona, which is on the National Register of Historic Places

Other outside exhibits are an original, restored Stamp Mill for crushing the ore removed from the mines on the Cave Creek Mining District. In the front of the Museum, visitors will find the Museum Gardens containing the various Sonoran Desert native plants.

The Museum Store is located in the Ansbaugh Auditorium, inside the front entrance of the Museum. It offers a unique selection of Arizona gifts, original works by local artists, and books by local authors and authors of the Southwest.

Please see the Museum Docents for any questions you may have during your visit.
