The museum is easy to find and interesting to go through. In addition to the maps locating the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine and some interesting stories about the area, we enjoyed seeing DeGrazia's original Superstition collection. Pick up the current season's book to find out about all of their special events & festivals going on throughout the year. Climb to... More

A lot of fun, they had a church that they filmed in old movie there. It had Elvis in it, and you can have your wedding there if you like The buggy that Doc used from Gunsmoke was in the barn. . Really cool. Alittle farer up the road was Goldfield Ghost town. Very nice, they have a zip line,... More

We drove from Scottsdale to Apache Junction to check out the Superstition Mountains. Came across the Museum and decided to check it out. Very cheap, only $5 per person and kids are free. The Museum is small and takes about 15 minutes to complete, but there are things to see outside. Most of the things outside are replicas. There is... More

We did this in combination with the ghost town down the road. It is really interesting for history buffs. You get to see a variety of buildings as they would look back in the day. There is also a museum that you can walk through and a large gift shop. They often have lectures as well.

This is a neat little Museum, lovingly cared for by many volunteers. Their exhibits are well done, many good lectures are to be had and the outdoor part is super interesting. Much to see and photograph. The backdrop of Superstion Mountain is stunning. Watch for weekend events!

What a nice museum with the most helpful staff we have ever seen. They have maps and will help you find a variety of attractions in the area as well as answering questions about the exhibits and the Superstition Mountains in general. The grounds are well maintained with lots of beautiful desert plants and cacti. If you are able, take... More

Very informative on the history of the Superstitions and the western movies that were made in the area. There is an entrance fee for the inside but anyone can walk and see the outside buildings, the Elvis Chapel and walking paths for free. Worth the stop.

The grounds were very nice and clean. There was a mini village set up. I wish they would have had people working in the out buildings. There were only hiking trails to get to the Mountain. It would be nice to have a train or coach of some type for those with problems walking.

I've been here twice with my children on field trips.. The kids always love this place! The volunteers are so nice and friendly. All the staff are great as well. Can't wait to see the new train addition when it's done..
