Prescott Attractions

Prescott has several museums and other attractions devoted to Western life and art, Native American and Southwestern history. Prescott has quite the interesting and adventurous past, full of entertaining tales and legends. We suggest you check out the museums and transport yourself to the old Wild West.

The Sharlot Hall Museum is the most prominent of the Prescott museums. Sharlot Hall was a writer, activist and Prescott rancher who realized as a young woman that the artifacts of her pioneer, ranching childhood were being scattered and lost. She began to rescue them, and her collection laid the foundations for the museum. The Smoki Museum displays art and artifacts from the indigenous Native American cultures of the Southwest. If you're looking for American West cowboy art, then The Phippen Museum on the northern edge of town is for you.
