If you are a Western Movie buff then you will enjoy this place. I lot of films were shot here and there are lots of antiques and relics. The museum is interesting, don't rush through it. We got a sarsaparilla (like root beer) from the shop in the barn. Very yummy. It's worth a visit.

Was not sure what to expect when we arrived. It looked like it was a staged area that was stuck out in the middle of nowhere. The museum was very informative. We ended up walking the trail around the property and that was nice. It was neat seeing the old pictures of actors that had made films down the road.... More

If you are interested in the history of the Supersition Mountains, this is the place to go. The staff is knowledgeable about the area and can answer questions you have about the wilderness and the characters who roamed around in it. The museum itself is small but well organized and interesting. The shop has a great selection of books and... More

A small place but neat backdrop, the Superstition Mountains. There is a small fee to go in the museum, but not the area around it... Boot Hill, The Church, some old things from the "Old wild west". Worth a visit.

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!
