The Arizona Capitol Museum relies on our dedicated volunteers and loyal members for external support for new exhibits, special events, and activities. We do not charge for admission, programs, or facility use. General operating expenses are covered by state funds through the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State. Help us grow by supporting the museum.
