Permanent Exhibits

The Sharlot Hall Museum is fortunate to house many permanent exhibits which contribute greatly to the rich cultural history of Arizona and, in particular, the Central Highlands and Yavapai County.  These include:

Prehistory of the Central Highlands

East Wing of the Lawler Exhibit Center features five distinct exhibits that trace the Central Highlands from the time of the “Beasts” through the migration of “Earliest Americans” and the indigenous peoples of the region, including the wonder of the “Hilltop Sites” and “Coalescence” of cultures before the arrival of European-descent and American settlers.

Skyviews: Aerial Townscapes of Prescott, 1868 to the Present

In the lobby of the Granite Creek Center (location of the Sharlot Hall Museum Research Center (Library & Archives) on McCormick Street), this permanent exhibit showcases the relationships between Prescott’s geography and civic growth.

The Baskets Keep Talking

The Hartzell Room of the Sharlot Hall Building hosts this delightful history of the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe and its culture through baskets and the stories these reveal.
