Really enjoyed the kind people who took care of us there. You could tell it was a friendly and close knit community who cared about the museum. The history of superstition mountain was very interesting and you can pace your own time viewing the exhibits. A gentleman was suddenly playing a beautiful flute in the gift shop when we were...

We just happened to stop here and it was well worth it. So much interesting history. There's also a model train that is amazing, replica town and chapel where Elvis filmed a movie. A great place!

It was our first stop on the Apache trail. A shrine to Elvis in the desert, model trains, and beautiful views of the Mountains. It was free and more interesting then what I had expected. Worth a stop,

The museum is small but interesting. Only $5 to get in but worth it. The staff was super friendly. The grounds have a lot to see, they have wild west style buildings to look in (saloon, jail, etc). The views are beautiful.

A small and quaint museum with local color. Interesting information on local history & gold mining. You can walk outside and see old buildings, learn about when they used to film movies & TV shows.

We visited the Superstition Mountain Museum while in Arizona after seeing it on a brochure at our hotel. We were glad we did, it was not that far away, and had plenty of parking, and the price was exceptional, which makes it a great value to visit alone or with a family. There were people there dressed in period costumes,... More

This was a random stop while traveling to another attraction. There is a diversity of things to see and experience here, most of them are free. They have a "Boot Hill" cemetery with humorous grave markers. It also serves as a small desert garden where the species of plants are labeled. There is a great outdoor model train village, probably... More

Museum has a lot of artifacts and is layed out really nicely. Indoor and outdoor displays and they sell souvenirs. Admittance price very reasonable at $5.00 and they still give senior discount to$4.00. Very interesting so plan for an hour or hour and a half for your visit. Is located by Goldfield so a lot of things to see without... More
