Arizona Military Museum


A visit to the Arizona Military Museum requires a bit of planning but the impressive displays of military history will satisfy history buffs and families alike. Museum hours are limited to Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm (closed in summer) but admission is free. The museum is housed on the grounds of the Arizona National Guard and is operated by the Arizona National Guard Historical Society, a nonprofit organization. All services are provided by volunteers, thus the limited hours. 

The museum is contained in an authentic adobe building constructed in 1936 as a part of the public works projects of the era. During World War II, the building served as an arsenal and was later converted to a maintenance building during the time German POWs were being held captive at a nearby prisoner of war camp. This hidden Arizona gem is definitely worth the visit.
