I had visited this area 6 or 7 years ago and I had enjoyed it so much, so while I was visiting Phoenix last month, I knew this was a place I wanted to go again. It was still as beautiful and enjoyable and scenic as it had been before, For those, who love to take pictures, this is a... More

We stopped in to check out the Museum and walked into a gift shop first. The workers were all talking and just stopped looked at us, and then just kept talking. Hello, how about a smile. We made our own fun, they had a small gun fight outside by the old buildings, which was cool. There is a tree that... More

I am very sorry that you did not have a positive experience. Do you mind telling me when you visited or what day of the week it was? About what time of the day was it? We work with mostly volunteers and encourage each of them to greet our guests the minute they walk in the door. I hope you... More

It took three attempts, but my husband and I hiked all the way to the top of flat iron! Very physically challenging, but what a sense of accomplishment! This is an incredible adventure.

My wife & I recently stumbled upon the Superstion Mountain Museum while going to a local ghost town. What a great find! The museum had so many old west displays and motion picture references that we stayed way longer than we had intended. A nice gift shop is also on the premises. We took a self-guide nature walk out toward... More

Have been here many times and never get bored. The museum is well kept and so informative. Wonderful location beneath the Superstition Mts. Couldn't ask for a better setting to learn the history of the area. If you are a winter visitor plan to attend the Thursday lectures. Make it a point to visit this museum.

This is a must if you are interested in the history of the area. The museum is full of indian and early settler facts and items, the grounds are a recreation of the early west, there is a nice walking trail behind the museum, and a model train exhibit and the Elvis Chapel complete the tour. Well worth the stop.

We stopped on our way to driving the Apache Trail. Knowledgeable and friendly staff and super clean grounds. Many photo opts and western movie buffs will enjoy the photo wall in the barn. Walking trails and shops abound.

Not only do I bring out of town visitors to this museum, I always go whenever they have special events outdoors, such as the Native American dancing and various art shows. The indoor museum is small but they are continuously working on improving the exhibits, and the outdoor portion of the museum is large, covers a lot of ground and... More
