We visited the Arizona Historical Society Museum today. The museum staff are fantastic! We participated in a story time and activity. The museum was not crowded and the exhibits were professional and interesting. The have a minerals and gems room that we throughly enjoyed as well as a small new children's activity section that we visited and enjoyed. We visited using a library culture pass obtained from the Scottsdale Public library. After having experienced the museum, I would recommend it.

For years I have passed by the Petersen House always curious about it but never stopping to take a look. It used to be open year-round for tours but now due to budget cuts it's only open at Christmas. (and occasional school groups I believe) So I decided this year I would finally get over there and check this place out. What a gem! And it was free! The house looks pretty big from the outside but inside it's actually fairly small. You could say it's charming and quaint.
