The fascinating history of the U.S. Army in the Southwest, as well as the history of the Southwest itself, unfolds at the Fort Huachuca Historical Museum. Opened in 1960, the museum has grown rapidly and now houses one of the most representative collections in the state. The museum is one of some 500 in the country to be accredited by the American Association of Museums.
The exhibits of the museum are instructive, entertaining, and visually satisfying. Some of the U.S. Army manuscripts and documents, dating back as far as 1861, are available for visitors to view.
The museum, in building 41401, is open to the public without charge. Civilian visitors are welcome from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
