We actually had pulled in here to look at a map, and found this very interesting place! The museum is interesting and really gives you a feel of what it was like looking for the Lost Dutchman Mine...still not found! We loved the outdoor displays as well, and were thrilled to find out Western movies has been filmed in the area. The barn has photos of actors who were there. Visitors of all ages walking around seemed to really be having a great time. The gift shop was absolutely fabulous...loved the variety of books they had and bought some. They had a lot of other merchandise too. Friendly staff. Glad we found this and will return.

We decided to visit the Museum as we were looking for something to do for half of a day. I am so glad we did! Even though it is small it is packed with fun memorabilia and history. The volunteers are eager to share the history and stories of the area with you. I made the mistake of wearing sandals as I would highly recommend having tennis shoes on. The admission price is only $7 for an adult.

We were looking for a short morning activity to do with our kids and my husband found this museum. I wish we would have had more time here! The museum is packed with history and artifacts, and you could easily spend an hour or more looking over everything. The volunteers in the gift shop are so kind and even surprised our boys with a couple of mementos to bring home with them. The grounds of the museum are well kept and the view of the mountain is amazing. We didn’t get to see it all so it is on our list for our next visit.

Very informative way to kill a couple hours. There is a display of wildlife of Arizona that shows animals in their natural settings. There was several movies and television shows filmed there and they have a display poster and scrips. There are several displays outside and they have reenactments also.

We visited the Superstition Mountain Museum in March. The museum was small but very educational. We wandered through at our own pace. There were out buildings as well to check out. The church was pretty neat. They also had replicas of a jail and store that was interesting. Watch out for snakes! We didn’t see any that day but I guess they can be around the trails out behind the museum.

After leaving the Ghost town we came across this museum while heading to our hotel. Very nice museum with lots of history. You learn all about the background of this area. And the outside grounds are informative as well. I recommend stopping by this small museum. Lots of parking as well.

I know all about Apache Junction, AZ. We had a home their in the Foot Hills of Superstition Mountain for 22 years, it was Our Winter Home. Arizona Opry is a good place to go, the Barleens are a talented Family. We knew the Father. Go the Apache Trail so much to see Tortilla Flats a fun place to shop and eat

Had some time on our way back from Tortilla Flat so decided to stop in. There are many interesting items on the grounds. Take a walk around before or after visiting the museum. It was great learning about Jacob Waltz, the Lost Dutchman, and his mine. We also enjoyed the Native American artifacts.

Loved looking at the old movie memorabilia wish the museum was open. Under construction at the time but looking forward to going back. If you have a movie or TV buff in your group it is a must see.

Enroute to another attraction, we stopped here hoping to find a restroom. This has to be the best kept secret AND it's free!!! Turns out, there's a walking trail that meanders up and around the various artifacts, historic buildings and icons and the view is spectacular. It's a wonderful place for pictures, a great history lesson, and definitely a piece of mind.

Yes, there are restrooms in the giftshop and I believe a fee for the museum itself. The walking paths are about five feet wide on dirt, and easy to walk on. You're actually at the base of the mountains and it's easy to put yourself back in time. Volunteers were knowledgeable and were around to explain the history. There was an iteresting stamp mill, which we had never seen, an Elvis Chapel, a barn with period equipment, an old carriage, cowboy and urban folklore and wonderful info on movies filmed on site.

What was supposed to be a quick pit stop turned into a surprising 45 minute history lesson on the Superstition Mountains and area folklore. Great for the whole family!
