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

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.
