The Pimeria Alta Museum is housed in the Old Nogales City Hall which was constructed in 1914. 

The museum provides information on the history of the Pimeria Alta and welcomes visitors to the border area. 

The Pimeria Alta Historical Society (PAHS) was formed in 1948, when a group of 28 concerned citizens got together to preserve the rich and exciting history of the area. 

Since its inauguration, the mayor, and city council of Nogales have supported the society, turning over the first floor and basement of the Old City Hall to PAHS for use as a museum in 1980.  ​

The museum has a research library which includes:

• A rotating historical displays of the region

• Archives of local newspapers including the Nogales International, Border Vidette, Oasis, and Nogales Daily Herald

• Three rare murals by renowned bull fighter and artist Salvador Corona

• An extensive photography display on Camp Little, home of the Buffalo soldiers, and life on the border. 

Visitors can tour the old jail cells, view the hand drawn and hand operated pumper fire truck known as, “Able and Willing” and peruse displays that will lead to an appreciation of the long and fascinating history of the area.
