I wish I could rate this place higher, as I am aware of how difficult it is to rely on donations and volunteers to run this small storefront space. There is much information about Cochise, Geronimo and the Chiricahua Apaches, and if one knows little, one can learn much here. However, the Museum definitely needs more lighting and a good... More

This museum needs updating and better lighting. There is plenty of information about the Native Americans and also the families who settled in the area. One section is devoted to the Spanish American War with many items from the Philippines of that period. A full sized wiki-up was also on display. The museum is in the stage of enlarging and... More

I am rating this so highly because it exceeds all expectations for a small storefront, privately endowed, volunteer operated Museum. There is a wealth of information about local settlers and Indian history. It is clear that this community has worked diligently to preserve their heritage. Definitely worth making a visit at this local museum.

Chatting with the lady at the desk was interesting. She has a lot of interesting stories. The story of Cochise is covered by several excellent displays. On the way out, I was lucky to see a book about the legendary Vin-Fizz aviation story, which was written by the lady I was chatting with!

If you have been to Fort Bowie, the Indian info here will enhance your experience. Lots of things on Geronimo and Cochise. The museum is tired but has some great info to see and read. $2 for admission and we just wandered around on our own.

Like other places in Arizona, the drive to the monument does not prepare you for the scenery when you arrive at the park. It is about 35 miles from Willcox and the drive is mostly through dry grassland. As soon as you enter the monument things change. The lower elevations are covered with dense oak forests with spectacular rock formations... More

We were visiting friends in the area and were pleased to find this small museum. Endless hours of documentation and research accompany the artifacts. It is a very interesting collection. Our guide for the day had his personal collection in the museum and was a treasure of information.
