Museum Orientation

The Museum’s interior exhibits are located in four areas: Central Ansbaugh Auditorium, the Archaeology Wing, the Pioneer Wing and the “Mini-wing.”  For more details on the exhibits in each area, download a copy of the Museum’s Gallery Guide.

Exiting the building through the mini-wing, you will find outdoor exhibits that include ranch implements and other large tools, 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 Buildings.

North of the front steps, find the miner’s arrastre, an authentic, recovered mill for crushing ore. At the front entry, explore the desert garden with plants identified.

The Museum Store is conveniently located between the Ansbaugh Auditorium and the Archaeology Wing, offering unique Arizona gifts and an extensive selection of books that capture life in the Southwest.

Photography for personal memories are acceptable without a flash. Professional photographers please make arrangements with the Executive Director at 480-488-2764
