We were driving through Springerville and were really looking for a bathroom (I HATE the ones at service stations). SO, we thought we'll make a quick visit to this museum, surely they will have bathrooms. Well, they did, but we started looking around and discovered an extremely interesting and well planned museum. It is in an old school house and each room has a different focus. One in on the Casa Malpais and others are devoted to local history. The docents are very well informed and are able to answer questions. In the hall there is an extensive display of local artists' creations most of which are for sale. We spent quite some time there and I would recommend a stop even is you don't want a bathroom.

I found a lot of informative information in this center. It was my first visit to Springerville in upstate Arizona and I fell in love with not only Springerville but the surrounding countryside. Beautiful scenery and beautiful people.

We enjoyed learning some interesting info about this small town's history. A lot of local pride and participation shows in this museum.

My wife and I have visited several small town museums and this one in Springerville rates as one of the best. There is a small section dedicated to the Casa Malpais site but a majority of the rooms depict the history of the area and it's people. As you can imagine, the west was settled by some interesting characters and this town certainly had its share. Definitely worth a day trip if you are in the area and enjoy history.

The gentleman that was there was great about telling us things about the art displayed in hallways and the rooms of historic items. Was a nice thing to do close to hotel.
