The recently renamed AZ Heritage Center is a gathering place for people of all ages. We are a museum, an event destination, a place to engage with the community. With a focus on twentieth and twenty-first century history, the museum exhibits take visitors on a trip through time – from early settlements to World War II and the post-war the rise of desert cities, and a look at Arizona pop culture. In addition, learn about the state’s geology through our extensive mineral and gem collection and Copper Mine Exhibit. While visiting the museum take time to enjoy the lush desert landscaping and scenic vistas. Located at the edge of Papago Park in Tempe, the central location is convenient to most of the metropolitan Phoenix area.
On the Southeastern edge of Papago Park; just one block West of Scottsdale Road and 1/2 mile south of McKellips Road in Tempe.
