This is a tiny place full of display cases with everything ranging from old campaign buttons to rocks. If you need to stretch your legs, entertain some visitors with a unique stop, or just satisfy your curiosity, this is the place. The suggested donation is $1.00, and you can't beat that! Note that the building is now painted a barn... More

Really small but packed with old artifacts and history. No charge to enter and look around. Nice displays. Doesn't take very long to see everything.

This is a tiny little museum in the little town of Superior. AZ It holds a few interesting items to look at. Worth a quick stop.

Very small museum, that's loaded with a lot of pictures / items. Something for everyone. History from our mines to movie stars. A must see if your in the area.

Well, it certainly is NOT world class but it is cute and surprisingly interesting as well. Is it REALY the World's smallest??? We take liberty with words, don't we? It' free and next door, on the same property, as the Buckboard Cafe. Plenty of parking too.

This smallest Museum has a great little cafe next door. I am kicking myself I did not take pictures. If you are going to the Boyce Thomson Arboretum from PHX, travel about one mile past to visit, you will be delighted you did.

It is a fun place to look at. They have a lot of old items in display cabinets to look at. You just walk in one side and out the other.

We stopped here on our way farther north. I would not have driven up to see this on its own, but it was a welcome stop. The museum is very small. There is an aisle through it and glass cases on either side. Some items tell the history of the area while others detail presidential election complete with buttons. There... More

Adjacent to the Buckboard Cafe in Superior is the world's smallest museum and I can verify that unless you counted things in a shoebox as a museum, this is the genuine article. Not much to see here, folks, but at least you won't spend the day chasing the kids around the displays. Old items in Arizona mean something different than... More
