Founded in 1958, the Pinal County Historical Museum, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit, is the oldest historical organization in Pinal County. The museum shares Florence and Pinal County’s rich stories through exhibits and educational programs. The museum covers Florence’s rich history and cultural diversity from precontact Native Americans to 21st-century local families who have lived, worked and attended school—continuously enriching our collective stories. See exhibits including cactus furniture, Florence’s Historic District, Second Territorial Prison, farm implements, and more. The museum houses a large and diverse research collection from which exhibits, and programs are created, as well as opportunities for academic and community-based research. Serving 5,000 visitors annually, the Pinal County Historical Museum is an economic asset to Florence. Visit our gift shop for handmade art, candles, jewelry, books, and gifts for kids.

Over the years the Museum has developed a good reputation for handling artifacts in a professional, respectful manner. This has generated more interest from families to donate heirlooms that enhance the stories that the Museum can tell of the region’s history. These displays provide local residents a greater appreciation for the history of the area from the Hohokam period to the founders of Florence.
