Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
At the Arizona Heritage Center at Papago Park, we connect with people by sharing Arizona’s history and engaging in meaningful conversations about how history impacts our lives today and tomorrow. Discover Arizona’s History! Let’s go on a trip to the AZ Heritage Center! Experience awesome exhibits and programs for kids and adults. Go retro with Phoenix icons like Bob’s Big Boy and Wallace and Ladmo, hang out at an old time general store, and take an up close look at a WWII training aircraft. Focusing on Central Arizona, the museum exhibits take visitors on a trip through time – from early settlements to World War II and the post-war rise of desert cities, to Arizona’s pop culture. Discover the beauty of minerals and gems from Arizona and around the world, and see a scale model of an Arizona copper mine. We are located at the southeast edge of Papago Park, with easy access from Loops 202 and 101. Free parking!
