Also known as the quarter master depot. Gives you more history on the Yuma area and the Colorado river. Worth a visit. Can walk through it fairly quick. I would do this the same day you do the prison. Both don't take long unless you want it to.

Very interesting. Yuma's history is about water access and there's still a strong water connection via the agriculture in the area. The quarter master's Depot connects that history to now. See the video.

A nice little museum. Best describes the military period of Yuma and its daily life. Worth a visit. We arrived late and did not taste the traditional apple pie. We'll be back tomorrow. charming

I went to Yuma to learn about the history of Yuma during the 1800s and I definitely could have spent a full day just in this park. Its one of the best kept secrets of Arizona. The park has several original buildings and the artifacts inside the buildings are amazing! The Yuma Visitors Center had two very wonderful women working and were very knowledgeable in the history of Yuma. Definitely plan on spending at least 2 hours here to see and read everything. This was the only spot to cross the Colorado River in the 1800's so wagon trains, the military, stagecoaches, the railroad and finally cars came though this town. The wetlands lay just to the north of this park so you will see a variety of birds!

We stopped because I thought my husband would enjoy it. I was pleasantly surprised when I did, too! So much history, and it was fun walking through the old houses, seeing them as they were. A quick tour, but absolutely worth it!
