Here’s a sneak preview of our new exhibit, opening tomorrow: “Anticipating the Future” which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the #Arizona state library ! This awesome exhibit has lots of cool retro technology, and a great retrospective of the last 150 years - plus it coincides with Statehood Day ! We’ve got a lot going on this weekend - come and see us !
Our 108 year old protest banner, in the Campaign for Statehood room on #ThirdFloorThursday - the description details how Arizona protested successfully against joint statehood with New Mexico, in 1906 - 6 years before we became a state ! (at #ThirdFloorThursday)
Secretary of State Ken Bennett found out how awesome the Defense to Development exhibit is ! Here he’s pictured trying out our interactive Touch Table, and piloting the crane by remote control. Come learn exactly how Arizona contributed to the WWII effort, and how we grew as a state after the war was over ! We’re open Monday through Friday 9-4, and Saturday 10-2.

Just because we connect people with government, doesn’t mean we’re not artistic too ! #nofilter #warhol #wingedvictory #Arizona #Capitol #Museum #ExecutiveWednesday #color #instagram #instacool (at Arizona Capitol Museum)
