NileGuide Expert tip:
The Pioneer Museum hosts a number of popular and quintessentially Arizonan seasonal festivals. Check their website to see what's happening during your visit.
- The Arizona Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff, located on the former site of the Coconino County Hospital for the Indigent, preserves the ranching, logging, and railroad history of Flagstaff and celebrates the pioneer spirit of all who helped build the city into what it is today. The museum is a member of the Arizona State Historical Society and State of Arizona archives division, which means this is an important repository for one-of-a-kind, historically significant Arizona treasures. Popular exhibits include the "Get Your Kicks on Route 66" display, the Nurse's Room, Iron Lung Room, the Arizona Rough Riders displays, and an exhibit on Pioneer Kids. Stop by the Fort Valley Mercantile, also known as the gift shop, for handcrafted novelties and Southwestern gifts.
