Just south of the Main Gate wall along North Campus Drive is Arizona Historical Society Museum, the largest of the Arizona Historical Society’s three Tucson museums.
Exhibits include a full-scale reproduction of the cramped canvas-tent homes early miners lived in, and a walk through a dark underground mine. There’s also an old Studebaker on display; this make of car was once so popular with Arizona’s sheriffs that the car company sent an author to the young state to write a public relations pamphlet that included exciting stories of frontier law enforcement.
The Arizona Historical Society Museum is an interesting stop for Arizona history buffs, and there are several hands-on exhibits for the kids.
