    The rich history of the Lower Verde River valley and the people who settled here is the focus of our interactive, family-friendly museum. Located in the heart of beautiful Fountain Hills, Arizona, The L. Alan Cruikshank River of Time Museum explores how the history of this region and our present-day lives are connected. As you journey through our museum, our exhibits showcase the ways desert dwellers – from the ancient Hohokam, the Yavapai, to early ranchers, and modern-day settlers – have found ways to create an oasis in the Verdes, and now Fountain Hills, throughout human history.

    The museum is currently open Thursday – Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and by appointment at 12901 N La Montana Dr #4742, Fountain Hills, AZ 85268. Learn more by visiting
