The Sharlot Hall Museum is fortunate to house many permanent exhibits which contribute greatly to the rich cultural history of Arizona and, in particular, the Central Highlands and Yavapai County. These include:

Lawler Exhibit Center

The Lawler Exhibit Center features an exhibit wing on the prehistory of Arizona’s Central Highlands, an exhibit on Sharlot M. Hall, and two changing exhibit spaces.

Transportation Building

From bicycles to surreys, freight wagon and stagecoach to Ford Model-T and Sharlot’s own Durant Star car, the Transportation Building hosts the Museum’s “rolling stock.”

Sharlot Hall Building Exhibits

The Sharlot Hall Building’s two permanent exhibits “The Baskets Keep Talking” and “Territorial Prescott” present a history of the Yavapai people and a window into the early culture of Prescott.

Skyviews: Aerial Townscapes of Prescott, 1868 to the Present

In the lobby of the Granite Creek Center, this permanent exhibit showcases the relationships between Prescott’s geography and civic growth.
