About this activity

Who is ready to go back in time? We are too! How about we go back to...the 1800s? Sound good? The Pioneer Living History Museum is the perfect place to make this happen!

The Pioneer Living History Museum is the perfect Phoenix attraction that can give kids and their families a great time, as well as teach them all about life in the 1800s. What better way to learn than enjoying a hands on experience!

There are over 90 acres at this living museum, filled with authentic historical buildings and historically accurate reproductions. You won't find any cars, or any smog...just everything you would have found in the 19th century.

The museum not only have historical buildings, but they teach you about the lives of real people who lived there. Did you know that a lady called Lily Langtry used to sing in the Opera House? You can see it for yourself!

You can explore the actual cabin that survived the bloodiest range war in the state, and you can even browse through a dress shop from the 1890s. We bet the fashion is slightly different than what you get today!

The Pioneer Living History Museum can really give kids a chance to experience a whole new way of life. They can visit the jail (only temporary!), the sheriff's office and even a blacksmith shop too.

The staff are also in costume, so you will spend the day with lawmen, cowboys, and even those lovely Victoria ladies.

So why not visit the most authentic Old West Town in Arizona. Y'all might just learn something new about life as a buccaneer! Yee Haw!
