Arizona and the Medal of Honor - New exhibit at AHS, Tempe

May 18 – October 24 "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 four of Arizona’s other native sons. The story of bravery under fire now will be told in this exciting new exhibit.

Exhibition included with general museum admission: $5.00; Ages 60+ and Ages 12-18: $4.00; Ages 11 and younger and all AHS members: Free. Regular Museum hours are 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tuesdays – Saturdays; 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Sundays. Closed Mondays and state holidays. Free parking at the museum.
