The Arizona State Capitol Museum


The Arizona State Capitol Museum houses some very rare USS Arizona
artifacts. Many of these artifacts were feared lost when the ship
was sunk on December 7, 1941. These rare artifacts include the
Silver Service, the Miner Statue and Sports Trophies.

The Silver Serivce was presented to the ship in 1916 by the citizens and businesses of state of
Arizona. After World War 2 the Service was also used on the USS Tucson and
USS Adirondack. The Service was later given to the state of Arizona.

The 40" Miner Statue was presented to the ship in 1916. The statue was usually placed just
outside the captain's cabin. The rare historic photo below was taken on the quarter
deck of the USS Arizona during a reception in Callao, Peru.

These items were removed from the ship shortly before the attack on December 7, 1941. The Miner
statue and sports trophies were lost for many years and feared gone forever.
They were located in a Navy warehouse and are now on display at the museum.
The museum also has a large piece of the USS Arizona and USS Arizona Reunion
Association display. The museum also has the Signal Mast and Anchor from
the USS Arizona on diplay outside.
