Some very interesting and eclectic exhibits about the Horse Soldiers and Marines. Docent was very excited about the subject and knew her stuff. Looks small but is packed with interesting artifacts presented in a compelling way.

Excellent collection of WW-I Uniforms and medical equipment. I wouldn't make a long trip to visit this place, but if in the area it's worth the visit.

This museum displays the owner's collection of historic memorabilia related to the Old West, mostly military. There is a wealth of items to view. Coming here is a chance to see actual objects from the period, weapons, uniforms and other items are fascinating. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your comment....although, I wish you had taken full advantage of your visit. The artifacts and items on display are not "about the cavalry in Arizona" and in fact the items are from horse soldiers representing the United States. Less than 10% of...More

We spent a very pleasant couple hours touring the museum. I think the foundation of the museum was a private collection that has been beefed up and displayed. It is a fascinating display about the role of horses (and mules) in the American armed services.
