Arizona Hall of Fame Museum


Arizona Hall of Fame Museum is located at 1101 West Washington in Phoenix, Arizona. There is no charge for admission although the facility is open only by appointment. The 1908 Carnegie Library has been restored to house the facility that holds exhibits about the people of the state and the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame.

Arizona Women's Hall of Fame Program was established during 1979 by Governor Bruce Babbitt's office and the Arizona Women's Commission. The goal was to honor the women that had a significant impact on the state's history. October of 1981 was when the first induction ceremony was held after a great deal of research was conducted on the nominees. Every two years there are new women inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The Museum received a large grant in 2008 that allowed it to update the website and exhibits in the Carnegie Center. There have been seventy-five women inducted into the museum. The exhibit in the Carnegie Center shows a number of custom quilts that features the museums inductees.

Those wishing to obtain additional information about the Arizona Hall of Fame Museum and its history should contact the facility directly. Anyone interesting in seeing exhibits at the museum should call for an appointment.
