It is more than a museum. The out buildings house old western movie sets along with the Elvis Chapel that has survived two fires. It is worth going on the Museum's web site for a rundown of all the interesting features and attractions it has. There is no charge for walking around the 12 acres that is the Museum's land... More

We stopped in just under an hour before they closed. We still enjoyed the museum for a small fee and the gift shop. I wanted to see the Elvis Chapel inside, but spent too much time shopping and missed it. Staff is friendly and informative.

A bit off the beaten path, but this is a cool place to stop for an hour or two. A little something for most, a barn, and church (Elvis Memorial chapel) from Apacheland Movie Ranch. A really stunning backdrop of Superstition Mountain, with some neat indoor exhibits explaining the history of the area. Being an Elvis junkie, that was my... More

Went to the museum to see what it was like and was pleasantly surprised. There is an awful lot of history packed into that small space. While there, I took a trip around the grounds and there was even more to see outside. They are running the stamp mill on select Monday's, so make sure you visit their website and... More

Plenty of photo ops on this walking tour. Two great little gift shops that carry authentic gift and jewelry items. I was impressed that this attraction is cared for and manned by volunteers. The $5 fee to go through the Lost Dutchman museum located in the back of the gift shop goes towards the maintenance to the priceless historical marker... More

This museum was worth a couple of hours. The museum is really a 2 part experience. The first part is inside the museum building. There is a neat hodgepodge of antiques and museum exhibits. About 2/3's of the way through,, a museum employee came in and played an Indian flute while we were walking around. The Museum covered life in... More
