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 so much about the only active fort surviving from as far back as Apache War times in Arizona.
You can get to the museum from Sierra Vista by taking Buffalo Soldier Trail north to Allison Winrow. Turn left onto Allison Winrow and head west toward the Main Gate to Fort Huachuca. You will see the gate on your right side. Once you get to the Main Gate, you will travel 3.6 miles northwest to the Old Post area. The museum is at Boyd and Grierson Avenues.
You need to get a visitor’s pass at the Main Gate in order to enter. The pass is given if you have a driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance.
The museum is open Monday through Friday 9:00 to 4:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday 1:00 to 4:00. It is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The admission is free, although a $2.00 donation is appreciated. If you would like more information, you may call 520-533-5736 or 520-533-3638.
