The Mission of the Fort Tuthill Military History Museum is to preserve and present, the 150+ year history of Arizona’s 158th Infantry Regiment, Arizona National Guard and Flagstaff’s Historic Fort Tuthill. To strongly emphasize education by assisting the public and students to better understand the important role this famous regiment and Fort Tuthill played in the history of our state and nation. To interact with Flagstaff, surrounding communities, and visitors from around the world by hosting patriotic events and by participating in activities exemplifying the museum’s continued roll as a contributing community member and neighbor.
The Museum was re-opened in June of 2017, located in two of the historic fort buildings located at Ft. Tuthill County Park. Our goal is to preserve and present Arizona's military history beginning in 1865 with AZ 1st Volunteers! with an emphasis on the 158th Infantry Regiment. Currently, we are only seasonal, however, as we grow, we hope to be in a position to stay open week-days and eventually in the winter months. We currently accommodate special groups and tours by appointment out of normal business hours. We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff; our admissions and donations sustain us. Our tour groups have been school field trips, senior care facilities, special interest, and most importantly, we opened for AZ National Guard educational tours to over 300 soldiers in our 1st 8 months in honor of their service and those before them. Since opening the museum, we have received the prestigious Order of Saint Maurice commendation from the National Infantry Association.
