Really neat place and all the "docents" were very friendly and knowledgable. I suggest visiting early in the day before it gets too hot. They do have Sarsaparilla for purchase so try it if you never have.

A fun place to just pop in and out of the various buildings and the grounds imagining how it must have been in the mining days. Covers a large area and zip line is available on the grounds.

It was a very interesting museum. They had guides inside to tell stories about the exhibits and it showed how people lived back in the day. Also had a gift shop to do a little shopping too. Enjoyed it alot.

The church is quite interesting. The museum has lots of things that are interesting. It also has a very nice gift shop. Hiking in back of this museum is a must. The view of the Superstition Mountains from this area is beautiful and the best place around to get a good photo of the mountain.

This museum has it all. From Elvis Presleys chapel to a stagecoach. We had a lot of fun. The best time to go is when they have the indian hoop dancers there. It was beautiful, amazing and a down right great time.

An OK museum. Some interesting things to see. They also have some set buildings from an old western movie set.

Got tickets on Groupon. It was interesting for the adults, but forgettable for the kids. The best thing was the ice cold sarsparilla that came with our tickets. The gift shop is nice. So are the walking trails right at the base of the Superstition mountains.

Very informative and interactive museum. From the rock formations of the area, the stagecoach trail, the Apache Indians , settlers, military, history and lore of the Supersition mountains, the old western movie studio and the local artist Degrazzi revolving exhibit. Did I mention except for the exhibit/museum, free. It's certainly worth visiting more than once. The ghost town, tortilla flats... More
