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

The museum is small and the surrounding area a short walk but it is really worth visiting. Friendly, helpful staff. Affordable for the whole family. Beautiful views of Superstition Mountain and nice walking trails. It was also great to see some pieces of the original Apacheland Movie Ranch which I had visited as a child.

Upon arrival, the museum didn't appear to be much. We were very, very surprised and found that we spent over 2.5 hrs visiting. Very nice displays that have had a lot of time and work put into them. There are many volunteers working throughout the grounds that are more than willing to educate the visitors and answer any questions. Well... More
