Cave Creek Museum is approaching 50 years old, having opened in 1970. It is primarily an effort of volunteers with the historical society having got together half a century ago with a view to preserving the known history of the region. Its appeal to the public for exhibits got a great response and more were added in subsequent years.

There are prehistoric artifacts of tools and pottery, which help teach about desert life all those centuries ago. The museum also has excellent coverage of settler, miner and military days in the immediate region.
