Antiques Road Show

The Antiques Roadshow filming – June, 2006

We accepted the Roadshow offer to film our Museum as a part of its 2007 programming.

They’d arranged for an appraiser to place values on a number of our carriages and wagons, and set up to film on a very warm (100F.) day in June. The filming lasted for nearly seven hours, due in part to delays caused by airplanes from Davis-Monthan Airbase flying over our buildings during some of the ‘takes’.


The following photos depict the actual shooting, with comments.DSC00152

Carriages & wagons lined up along Main Street in museum.
The flexibility of the museum layout lent itself to this rearrangement.

After a long, hot day, there was some down time, and Bernice Anderson had an opportunity to chat with Mark Wahlberg.

The show was first broadcast in February, 2007, and has been repeated many times, worldwide, since then.

Thank you to the Antiques Roadshow.
