Welcome to the Ajo Museum & Ajo Historical Society

picture of the Museum

The Ajo Historical Society was founded in 1975 and the Ajo Historical Society Museum was opened in 1976. The Museum is located just a few minutes away from downtown Ajo at the St. Catherine's Indian Mission 1/4 mile to the west of the mine overlook on the Mine lookout road. The Museum itself is home to several different items from Ajo and the surrounding area's past.
