About The Carver Museum

Welcome to The Carver Museum

Celebrating Over 90 Years of Service

The Carver Museum has been and will continue to be a positive force for diversity and inclusion within Arizona and beyond. For nearly twenty years we have provided educational opportunities to the community. We recently took significant measure to broaden our cross-cultural ventures and expand community partnerships to ultimately present an extensive offering of programs that edify, educate and entertain.
