category : Museums
Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum The Bullion Plaza Cultural Center and Museum is at the western edge of Miami, Arizona. Bullion Plaza School was opened in 1923 as a grammar school for Mexican-American and Apache Indian children. The school was desegregated in the early 1950s and served as a public school until 1994. In 2000 the school was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The museum is dedicated to preserving and presenting our culturally diverse history, the human experience, as well as exploring the natural environment unique to Gila County. Exhibits include memorabilia from the mining, ranching and Native American communities, tributes to area residents for service in the armed forces and for outstanding participation in both the public and private sectors. Other items on display highlight the cultural life of the region\'s diverse community and include the lifetime collection of ceramic tile processes and creations donated by artists Charmion and Bob McKusick.

The museum\'s exhibits are on display in several ground-floor rooms, including the Library Room which contains a colorful mural painted in the late 1930s by grammar school students.
