Fort Huachuca Museum gives visitors a chance to see what the fort was like long ago and what present day activities are taking place. The museum relives the Apache wars, Pershing's Expedition and the fort's role in World War II training. You will learn about the only active fort surviving from as far back as Apache War times in Arizona.
Opened in 1960, the museum has grown rapidly and now houses one of the most representative collections in the state. The museum is one of some 500 in the country to be accredited by the American Association of Museums. Its goals have remained unchanged. Simply said, the Fort Huachuca Historical Museum endeavors to bring to the military community and general public a heightened awareness of, and an increased appreciation for, the colorful history of the Southwest and, especially, the prominent part played by the U.S. Army.
The exhibits are instructive, entertaining, and aesthetically satisfying. Some of the U.S. Army manuscripts and documents, dating back as far as 1861, can tell the viewer a great deal about the way of life on a rugged frontier.
A Museum Annex across the street from the Fort Huachuca Historical Museum displays more artifacts belonging to the museum.
