School Tours

We offer interactive tours for school groups!

An interactive tour at the Sharlot Hall Museum offers a comprehensive look at Arizona’s long and diverse history. Exhibits and historic buildings cover many historical periods, from the Pleistocene period with its mammoths, mastodons, and dire wolves to Prescott’s role as Territorial capital and the building of Arizona’s first Governor’s Mansion. Buildings such as the Schoolhouse and Ranch House explore everyday frontier life and society. Students are introduced to topics such as education, home life, chores on a ranch, and other experiences common to pioneer families.

Tours also provide opportunities for students to check out the Museum’s artifact collections. The Transportation Building showcases historic bicycles from the late 19th century as well as stagecoaches, covered wagons and historic cars. The Sharlot Hall Building displays artifacts from early Prescott and features an exhibit on the Yavapai Indian Tribe. Experience all of these in a Sharlot Hall Museum school tour—plus much, much more!
