2018 Membership Campaign Starts NOW. Your Del Webb Sun Cities Museum represents both Sun City and Sun City West and between the two communities we have approximately 46,000 households. Out of those households we have a paltry membership of 110. We need that number to increase greatly if we plan to continue our mission promoting public awareness and appreciation of the history of the nation’s first active adult communities and the legacy of our founder, Del E. Webb. Needless to say, we need your help. Please JOIN TODAY and take advantage of our 2018 Household Special membership fee of only $20. Membership is tax deductible and can be made online with a credit or debit card.
Step back in time as you enter one of the five original model homes opened in 1960. Priced at $8500, LIFE Magazine would describe it as “the least expensive home on a golf course in America.”
The living room, kitchen, and bathroom retain their 1960 ambiance. The two other rooms and later additions house exhibits on:
• The legendary Del Webb and the company he built
• The Marinette cotton plantation that preceded Sun City
• Life in Sun City – golf, baseball, performing arts
• Transition of Lizard Acres to Sun City West, and more
Top off your visit by watching “The Beginning” (see below) in the Sundome Jr. – Arizona’s smallest theater, seating six on seats taken from the Sundome before it was razed.
Best of all, admission is FREE!
