Arizona Capitol Museum Exhibits
The Big Exhibit Makeover
The Arizona Capitol Museum has a busy summer ahead! Beginning in June, Nature’s Mirror will end its six year run and the artifacts will return to the ACM collection to rest. Arizona State Symbols will move from the first floor into a larger third floor space with more hands on activities and artifacts. This will provide an even more engaging experience for visitors and allow us to make some much needed space on the first floor for a brand new, multi room exhibit.
This new exhibit, scheduled to open on December 7, 2013, will provide interpretation and context for the new World War Two memorial in Wesley Bolin plaza. The memorial will include a large gun from the USS Arizona and another from the USS Missouri, the ship where Japan surrendered. These symbols of the beginnig and end of WWII for the United States would serve as an ongoing salute to the fallen servicemen. Learn more at www.gunstosalutethefallen.com.
The ACM has four floors of exhibits that connect people to Arizona Government - Past and Present. Experience how the Arizona government was established as a territory. Witness the transition from territory to state. Learn how Arizonans continue to affect the evolution of the state.
