I like museums, small - medium - large. This is a small museum, as far as the actual museum building is. But the grounds next to the museum is a surprise - lots of buildings with people (volunteers) on hand to explain everything. The museum covers in depth condensed intros into natives, ranchers, animals, etc. Good displays but limited -... More

If you have time you might consider this first stop on the Apache Trail. Several buildings, nice gift shop, museum, clean restrooms and replica working model railroad display. If you enjoy history you may enjoy it, although the outside exhibits are minimal. We were impressed with the commitment of the volunteer staff.

Superstition Mountain Museum is a small museum but chocked full of interesting information and lovely hand crafted items to purchase. There are a number of restored early American buildings to visit at the same location. They also have a once a year festival which showcases many native American artifacts and crafts - well worth seeing. Not sure of the month... More

This place is wonderful! I loved visiting! There is lots to see, they have burros, a blacksmith, a cool train set, and a really nice museum, and the people that work there are so friendly and fun to talk to! In my opinion this museum is better and more authentic than goldfield and definitely a must-see attraction in Apache Junction.

This place is run almost exclusively by volunteers. Almost everything is free of charge. Only the museum charges a fee (quite low). It has great views of the surrounding mountains, and offers a demonstration of a stamp mill (which grinds chunks of rock into a fine powder to extract the gold). A lot of western-themed movies were filmed nearby, until... More

This museum is small but very nicely set up. Lots to see and learn. Staff who are mainly volunteers are wonderful. Lots of other attractions are nearby so makes for a good day trip.

We expected a history of the mountains, and got great info, saw recreated buildings, including a jail, church, rock crusher, movie star info, saw wonderful cacti and meant lovely, informative people. The gift shop is great too! The model train display is unbelievable!! Donkeys, cemetery (mock).

While this museum is small, they've done a nice job of tapping into local history. The admission price is $5 for adults. You can walk around the grounds, see the stamp mill, view a blacksmith shop, carriage barn, and stop in their gift shop. Recommended stop.
