Stopped at the museum to look at the various exhibits, including names of the various cacti in the gardens. The old steam rock crusher was very interesting to observe. The history of westerns filmed in the area was fun. Looking at photos of the actors and actresses brought back memories of a long-ago childhood.

The indoor part of the museum is quite small but very well set up. So much history of the area is contained within the walls of this quaint historical museum - you have to go to appreciate it. A small gift shop is attached. The outside part allows for more learnings as you walk through and visit Boot Hill, incredible... More

The museum is quite small but packed with exhibits and information. There is quite an emphasis on stories and info about the Lost Dutchman mine. There was also a display of original works by a local artist. The entrance fee is very reasonable. I think children under the age of 12 or so would be rather bored. In a clever... More

We stopped at the museum while visiting in Apache Junction. We found it quite interesting in educating us about the area. Beautiful scenery too.

Enroute to another attraction, we stopped here hoping to find a restroom. This has to be the best kept secret AND it's free!!! Turns out, there's a walking trail that meanders up and around the various artifacts, historic buildings and icons and the view is spectacular. It's a wonderful place for pictures, a great history lesson, and definitely a piece... More

This museum is small but perfectly formed - Goldfield town up the road is fine for a bit of fun but this museum gives you a real understanding of the historical and geological background to the area. The exhibits outside are also interesting. The whole museum is much better value and more tasteful than Goldfield Ghost Town.

It was definitely interesting history of the area and the staff was helpful - a bit 'touristy' but if you have kids or are a city dweller from back east, then you won't notice. It gave me new insight to the Superstition's and the Lost Dutchman mine.

We needed something to do for a couple of hours, it took us 30 minutes to drive here and 5 minutes to be ready to leave. It was cheesy and boring. For $5 per person I expected better
