The Bonelli house is a third museum included in the high value single entry ticket along with Kingman 66 museum and the Mohave museum. While the other two were pretty interesting, this one wasn't so. It's also little bit further from those two. You must visit it with a tour and it describes and showcases a house of one of... More

We hit all the big 3 museums in Kingman on this day. The route 66, the local history museum and finally this as it was a package deal. Quite interesting to see how the houses were built in this day and age. The docent was very knowledgeable and friendly.

I have visited the Bonelli House several times over the past four decades and every time I hear, see and experience something new. I understand that the Bonelli son lived in the house for some years after the rest of his family passed away and he was reluctant to clean out their belongings so it truly is as the family... More

Historic home. Tours given this home are very good. Home is furnished with many of the original items from the Bonelli family.. Built with 2 foot walls and basement house could remain comfortable even with the summer heat. Tour includes first and second floors

On an overnight road trip from Vegas we spent a few hours in Kingman. Prior research had found this place and we decided to have a look. The history dates back to the start of Kingman and was owned and updated by a wealthy landowner and his family. You are taken round room by room by the guide who points... More

One of the interesting attractions in Kingman is the historical Bonelli House ($2 suggested donation) which was built in 1915, representing an example of Anglo Territorial Architecture. Opening Hours 11am to 3pm (Monday-Friday). This century old homestead was built out of local tufa stone by George Bonelli and was used by the Bonelli family until 1973 when it was purchased... More

The tour guide was informative. This house has original furnishing on the first floor and examples from the era on the second floor. Felt like the family had just stepped out. Thanks goes to the Route 66 Museum for suggesting it. By the way, only $3 for a senior ticket that gets you into THREE museums in the area. Such... More

This was an old home built around 1914 with stone exterior very thick. The home is furnished in the most part with original articles from the family and the home. It was interesting but unfortunately the regular curator was not in so some information was a little vague. It is part of a package with Mohave Museum, Route 66 so... More

We visited this house by chance (ticket for route 66 museum is also valid for this house) Good surprise : the person who lead the visit was very nice and interesting. The history of this house is interesting, and things to see inside are nice.
