Mohave Museum of History & Arts


Founded in 1961, the Mohave Museum is a warren of rooms filled with extraordinarily eclectic stuff. All sorts of regional topics are dealt with, from mining towns to Andy Devine. There's also an entire wall of oil portraits of American first ladies – all painted by the same artist! And check out the piece of petrified lightning. Tickets can also be used at the Route 66 Museum in the Powerhouse.
