The Mohave Museum of History and Arts was founded in 1961 by the Mohave Historical Society. Located in Kingman, Arizona, the Museum is a private, not-for-profit organization. Its growth and current operations are financed entirely by admissions, memberships and contributions. The Museum is dedicated to the purposes of preserving the heritage of Northwestern Arizona and of presenting that history to the public. The Museum and Library house a collection of artifacts, photographs, oral histories, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, and publications that document the history of Mohave County, Arizona.
