Who would have known that NYC's Mayor LaGuardia spent his informative years at Ft. Whipple, now a VA Medical Center. The history is amazing and in such a small museum.

This was a pleasant small museum to visit. There is a lot of history to learn of the Fort which tells one what was involved in the days from the "old" west to the times of WWII and present. The curator was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
We toured the Fort Whipple Museum in Prescott, AZ. We had a wonderful docent by the name of Barbara who was very knowledgable regarding the early history. The house is really lovely as well.
Fort Whipple is now home to the VA hospital that serves all of Northern Arizona, over 150,000 veterans. You can drive through or park and walk the campus. The site is lovely and includes officer housing, greenhouses and solar installations to help defray the cost of the facility, and you can get a fair meal at the canteen.
I teach AZ history in High School and I see Ft Whipple as one of the best preserved sites in the state. It's the kind of museum that tells a brilliant story with a small collection and period architecture. Kudos to the knowledgeable staff and reenactors.
I would and have recommended a visit to this museum as we found it so interesting in taking a look back. We found out LaGuardia Airport is named after a man that grew up at Fort Whipple.
This museum is small, but informative. Lots of information and pictures. It really gives you a perspective on how Prescott was in it's infancy!
