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

This small museum is a surprisingly great way to get a quick overview of several layers of recent history (ok, also geology and wildlife) of the area - from findings related to indians, cowboys / ranches, to some interesting details about the gold rush times. Visited with a friend (expert for Arizona - but has not yet seen this museum!)... More

We discovered the museum while we were sightseeing east of Apache Junction. It impressed us so much it helped us make a decision to move to Arizona. We plan to volunteer when we move to Mesa in the next couple of months.

This place is so interesting. It is small. The presentations can be a bit simple. But the info is good. The stories are good. They have a Thursday program that is the BEST. Different speakers each time. So interesting.. Folk lore, history, demos. We love to go at 2:00 with our lawn chair, and be ready to be entertained. The... More

This was kind of an interesting place. I'd recommend a stop if you are already in the area. The grounds outside are free, the small museum is inexpensive.

This was an amazing stop. Who knew!?! We could spend a good hour or longer here. Inside and out - also great mercantile store in barn and gift shop in main building. The grounds were well done, clean and cool. Definitely worth it... and so affordable!!!

My significant other and I love to check out as many museums as we can. I can't believe we missed this museum for so many years. Very small, but very interesting. I'm originally from Chicago. I am used to the large museums. But this little museum is incredible! $5 for regular admission, $4 for senior (55 plus). The staff was... More

We hiked the Lost Dutchman, Treasure loop, which goes up to the base of the Superstitions. The mountains are beautiful and look great in pictures. Lots of hiking trails to choose from.
