Ash Fork is a small town on 66 that is considered the "flagstone capitol of the world". The museum is free, but open only Monday - Friday. It isn't a big and fancy museum, you basically get what you pay for the visit (it is free), but it is worth going to if you happen to be staying there. It... 更多
JoJo advised us to stop in Ash Fork on our way from Williams to Prescott. awesome museum, the fellow working there was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. lots of neat stuff and nicely done, plan on spending an hour to really see all of the artifacts.
The Ash Fork museum was very worthwhile to visit, very interesting, and had a very good docent guiding us through the museum. We learned a lot about the area with our visit. Glad we went there.

They also have a fantastic kachina exhibit. Sadly, many of the historic buildings were demolished or burnt down. But the replicas of the old Ash Fork from 40s... 更多

I enjoy stopping at local museums and have seen many throughout the US. The Ash Fork Museum, I think, is exceptional. I spent well over an hour perusing the displays. The volunteer was quite knowledgeable and interesting. A real enjoyable place.
Just wanted to stretch my legs but ended up staying at this amazing place over an hour. The history of Ash Fork was curated so well I had to spend time at almost every exhibit, So interesting how a new highway (interstate 40) can change a community over the years. The little bits oh history about the people from the... 更多
