Here on this 15-acre site, you'll be able to visit the Elvis Memorial Chapel, Apacheland Movie Ranch Barn and take in views of the Superstition Mountain. Nice walking paths will lead you to many photographic opportunities. I bring family and friends here all the time

Very nice museum. We unfortunately went during the noontime heat and didn’t see all the outside attractions. What we did see was very nice and we would go again in the cooler part of the day. Highly recommend and will go again.
