Welcome to the AZ Heritage Center, home of the Centennial Museum, where we honor the state’s rich heritage, celebrate the present, and together, create a vibrant and sustainable future. Our museum features exhibits spanning more than 100 years of Central Arizona history, and introduces visitors to the life and work of Arizonans, past and present.
In addition to the Centennial Museum, the AZ Heritage Center is a cultural center where visitors can participate in a variety of educational and entertaining programming and events for adults and children. Guided and self-guided tours are available for school children and adult groups, and can be customized to meet your needs.
The AZ Heritage Center is also a beautiful and functional event venue, featuring a charming brick courtyard, majestic sandstone lobby, auditorium and theater, and multiple meeting spaces.
