Mohave Museum of History & Arts


To purchase prints of this photo contact ArizonaPhotographyByStephanie.com

Mohave Museum of History and Arts is located at 400 W. Beale Street, in Kingman, Arizona. This private, not-for-profit organization was founded in 1961. We are dedicated to the purposes of preserving the heritage of Northwestern Arizona and of presenting that history to the public.

The varied collection of dioramas, murals, and many artifacts show development from prehistoric times to the present. A ranching video tells about life on the range, past and present, in Mohave County. You'll also see paintings, sculpture, and crafts in the art gallery, photos showing construction of Hoover Dam, carved turquoise mined in the Kingman area.

The Hualapai Native American Room contains a full-size wickiup brush shelter, pottery, baskets, and other crafts. The museum even features a pipe organ used in concerts here, and a special exhibit on local-boy-turned-movie-star Andy Devine. Outdoor exhibits display ranching and mining machinery, storefronts, a mine replica, and a 1923 railroad caboose.

History buffs can dig into the museum's library which maintains documents, manuscripts, maps, and photos about Mohave County, Arizona and the American Southwest. Visit the Mohave Museum.
