We checked out the church with 'Elivis' at the alter. The volunteers were very helpful and full of interesting, historical facts about the movies that were filmed there years ago. The grounds and buildings are well maintained and takes you back in time. It will be nice to return to see the model railroad in operation once it is finished.... More

We enjoyed walking around seeing the outdoor exhibits. Great for history buffs and learning about Apacheland and all the movies made there. The best part is the very enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers willing to share their knowledge and answer questions.

This historic site is a real favorite! Everything from the Elvis Presley Chapel, (From his film, "Charro"!, to the actual museum. Most interesting displays, and for the few dollars admission, this place is a bargain! Take a walk around the grounds, enjoy!

Just across from Goldfield Ghost Town, worth a quick visit. The little white church with the Superstition Mountains in the background is picture perfect.

The movies were not actually filmed here, but at the old Apacheland Movieland Ranch, which was located at the South end of Gold Canyon. Several Western movies, including Audie Murphy’s “Arizona Raiders” and Elvis’ Charro, were filmed there, in addition to episodes of such popular tv shows as “Have Gun – Will Travel” and “Death valley Days”. When Apacheland burned... More

Very informative staff and out door exhibits, Free to walk around the outside and a small fee to go into the museum. It is worth the 5 dollar charge. If you like history of the area and mining this is a good place.
