The Buckeye Valley Museum was established by volunteers in 1954. The museum was also run by the same volunteers until 2007, when its operation was passed on to the Town of Buckeye. When it was founded in 1954, the Museum works toward the preservation and sharing of the history of Buckeye as well as its surrounding communities. The Museum enables its visitors to relive the past through its displays that feature historic photographs, Hohokam pottery, family histories, artifacts, yearbooks from the Buckeye High School, and other objects dating back to the establishment of the town. It serves as an impressive place for people to learn more about Buckeye and its past. Visitors will be able to learn more about the people, family histories, the Buckeye Canal, Thomas Newt Clanton, who was famous for being the leader of the 6-member party and founder of the settlement that was going to be the Town of Buckeye, Mailen M. Jackson, who named the Canal in honor of his native state, William ?Bucky? O?Neil, who helped in laying out the town site on a portion of the Clanton homestead.

The Museum is open on the months of September to June from Wednesday to Saturday.
