Welcome to the Cave Creek Museum

Your Adventure Starts Here

Your Museum Experience

The Ansbaugh Auditorium is the gateway for your museum experience that leads you to everything the museum offers. Inside you’ll find exhibits of Sonoran Desert life and works by local artists, the Archaeology Wing and the History Wing. The Mini-Wing leads you to the Outdoor Exhibits that include the Golden Reef Stamp Mill, the first church of Cave Creek and the last known original Tubercular Cabin in Arizona.

A must-do is The Arizona Gold Mining Experience with a lively recounting of Cave Creek Mining District’s heyday. Hold onto your hats when the old mine blows its top! Then onto the Golden Reef Stamp Mill where the mountainsides echo when it fires up. Plus more exciting demonstrations. (Check our Events calendar for dates/tickets.)

Don’t forget to stop in the Museum Store offering a unique selection of Arizona gifts where you’ll find something for everyone … even yourself!

Please see our Museum volunteers for any questions during your visit.
