We stopped here on the way to Goldfield and Tortilla Flat. We actually enjoyed this the most. There is a lot of history here and the photo gallery brought back many memories of the TV and Movie Western Greats. The model Railroad is beautiful and the historic buildings are really interesting. You can stroll through the 15 Acre site for... More

Nice place to walk around and learn some of the history in area. Nothing going on the day we visited but still enjoyed the displays and the nostalgia of the old movie cowboys and what was there. It was a peaceful place a great gift shop and again was late in the day and missed the museum. Will return again.

We have 2 boys ages 7 and 9. We spent about 2 hours seeing all the sites. Everything is musty if you have allergies. There was a brand new train display that has just opened. That was the highlight of the stop. We walked the short path to get a better view of the mountain. The museum is small with... More

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
