A museum in progress.

This is a small museum with outdoor exhibits. It is not great but we did enjoy our visit. It is worth spending 1-2 hours on this site to learn some local history.

Like all museums, you should learn about the history of the exhibition before going or else you wouldn't really appreciate what's shown.

We arrived late in the day. The Museum was going to close in about a half hour. So we entered and learned about the Lost Dutchman. It was very interesting and fun. There is a map of the different Native American tribes which was interesting. Information of the different wildlife in the area. Did not have the time to check... More

You are able to get a feel of the surrounding area where many movies are filmed without paying for museum. Found museum info limited. Grounds were fun to explore

The museum is a little disappointing but it was still interesting and worth the $5. The gift shop is terrific and worth the trip even for just that.

I've lived in Arizona over 15 years and and visited several museums not just here but in over 15 countries. This little gem has a lot to offer. It has local Lost Dutchman history as well as Native American lore. It not stuffy as a lot of museums tend to be and is well worth the stop.

Inside is a nice museum on the areas history, lost Dutchman mine, and gold mining-only $5 to support the museum. Friendly volunteers where I learned that there was a Discovery Channel show on the Superstition mountains and the lost Dutchman mine that very evening I was in town. A nice gift shop is attached. Outside were an Elvis Presley experience... More

We visited Apache Junction not knowing about the Superstition Mountains. We were delighted to see them and that there was snow on them one day.

Welcoming volunteers who knew a lot and shared it willingly. We really liked the museum, but were equally impressed by the "Barn" and the Chapel.
