Mohave Museum of History and Arts Coupons, Savings and Museum Description for 2021
North Arizona is a land of pine forested mountains, deep canyons, fertile river valleys, and high cactus covered deserts... Rich in a variety of minerals gold, silver, copper, molybdenum, turquoise and other gemstones ... inhabited by shy bighorn sheep and deer, as well as snakes, scorpions, tarantulas ... Quail and cactus wrens, antelope, coyotes and the inevitable jack rabbits.
Fleet-footed Mohave Indians blazed trails or followed the ones left by their ancestors or animals ... Missionaries and Spanish soldiers searched for souls to save or gold to mine ... Wagon trains rolled through, filled with people seeking land or a new way of life ... Herds of cattle were driven through to feed the military or the new settlers. All of these people left their footprints in time and changed the face of the land.
The Mohave Museum of History and Arts is dedicated to the purposes of preserving the heritage of Northwestern Arizona and of presenting that history to the public
