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

This museum provides visitors with a birds-eye view of how this landmark evolved and how folks lived and worked. There are several miniature scenes used for western movies along with actual stables, iron works, and ore mining apparatus. Don't forget the gift shop to find a large variety of souvenirs. The volunteers are very informative and are really friendly.

Come to this arid lair of snakes, spiders, and scorpions??? Visit this informal museum in the East Valley and learn about the geological, cultural, and economic history of the area. Required visit for all snowbirds (winter residents migrating from the frozen north) as wel as just-passing-through's. Rubberneck through the assemblage of mining machinery spanning over a century. Marvel at the... More

A small shop with a little museum in the back. It was a little over priced for what it was. But if you are rolling around the area it is some thing to burn a little time. I was more interested in what the had out back and the stunning view of the mountain then the museum inside.

This museum is a great place to learn about the Superstitions! The gift shop has a wide variety of items from Native American jewelry to Books about the area. They have outdoor evening concerts with the Superstition Mountains as a back drop. Also have wonderful Thursday lectures about the area.

We've lived in the Apache Junction area for 16 years and I love the fact that this museum gave me history of the area that I live in. We came as a small group and everyone enjoyed the museum. There are things to see both indoors and outdoors.

The Superstition Mountain Museum is probably the first stop heading out east on the Apache Trail. Don't drive past it as I almost did. The $4 (senior citizen rate) I paid to enter the museum itself was the best $4 I spent on my entire 8-day trip to AZ.

Very nice place to visit. Cheap and interesting. Good place to start while touring Apache trail and the Apache area. See real movie scene areas from westerns. And the mango Popsicle in the general store is yummy as a bonus $1.
