Geronimo Exhibit

— Arizona Historical Society 150 Exhibit
Above and Beyond: Arizona and the Medal of Honor
Between 1862 and 1889, some 157 United States Army officers and enlisted men serving in today’s Arizona received the nation’s highest military decoration for valor. Since that time, these Medal of Honor recipients, including eleven Apache scouts, would be joined by five of Arizona’s other native sons. The story of bravery under fire is told in this exciting new exhibit on display through May 7, 2016, and included with museum admission.

The Arizona History Museum’s focus is southern Arizona history from Spanish colonial through territorial eras. Exhibit topics include mining and transportation. The Arizona’s Treasures exhibit features Geronimo’s rifle, 18th-century Spanish silver artifacts, and hands-on exhibits for children.
