Occasionally, the museum is closed during regularly scheduled hours due to under-staffing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  When open, volunteers are on site to take your call at (928) 445-1230 to confirm that the museum is open.  We apologize for any inconvenience that unavoidable, periodic closures may cause. 
Thank you for understanding.
