2019 Membership Campaign – Membership is vital to our ongoing operation. We are looking to gain 1,000 new memberships during 2019. With approximately 44,000 homes in our two communities and basic membership being only $25 per year, we feel this is a very realistic goal. Members receive invitations to various special events at the museum throughout the year. Join our increasing numbers now at MEMBERSHIP
Membership is tax deductible and can be made online with a credit or debit card.
BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP has new opportunities this year. You can write off the tax deduction or classify the membership as advertising. You have the option.
Stop in and see the newly updated Del Webb room. Learn about the man who created the Sun Cities, owned the New York Yankees, his connection to Las Vegas and the infamous “Bugsy” Siegel, and so much more. Click here for a sneak peak. DEL WEBB ROOM
“Concrete, steel and lumber make the buildings, but people make the community. As has been the case so many times in the past, if people of good will sit down together with one objective – the building of a better community – the future has great promise.”
— Del Webb’s vision for Sun City in 1960
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!
