The Cave Creek Museum is committed to the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, and employees.

Along with many other public institutions, CCM is monitoring the outbreak and pandemic of coronavirus (covid-19). We are following guidelines recommended by the center for disease and control, AZ Department of Health Services (ADHS), and Maricopa County Department of Public Health (MCDPH).

Out of an abundance of caution in support of other preventive measures underway to combat COVID-19, the Cave Creek Museum will temporarily suspend all public hours.

The museum is always closed to the public on Mondays & Tuesdays but will stay closed to the public for the remainder of the Season to start Renovations.

The situation will be monitored and updated regularly, adjusting or extending response as needed.

Cave Creek Museum’s website and Facebook account will be updated to inform the public of any changes.

The 2019/20 season is our 50th year of preserving the artifacts of the prehistory, culture and legacy of the Cave Creek/Carefree foothills area through education, research and interpretive exhibits.
