Really a cool place

Great place to view the mountain and mining equipment. The little backroom tour is only $5 and worth the price to see all the items they have.

The museum has lots of pictures, newspaper articles and hardware. Worth the $4 I guess. Outside, Apacheland is a little weird. I grew up on a ranch that had most of the equipment shown on the grounds. Might work for you. Not for me.

Great museum on 12 acres of land, it presents the history of Lost Dutchman and the Superstition Mountains, the gold rush and many many interesting artifacts. Many western movies sets left as museum exhibits. Also an Elvis chapel here

This is a fascinating little museum that relates the historical search for the Lost Dutchman mine on Superstition Mountain. The search for the gold is still on. We were told every year people lose their lives on the mountain. Displayed are a dozen or so maps to find the goldmine. There are interesting artifacts, photos, and archeological evidence of the...

Very nice setting near the Superstition Mountains, with a great little museum there. Learn about Jacob Waltz and The Lost Dutchman Mine. A perfect area to visit for kids and adults, and see Elvis's chapel.

We visited this museum which is spread out on a large parcel with a great view of the Superstition Mountains. We had our 22 month old grandson with us so we spend a lot of time chasing him around on the grounds hoping to wear him out for a nap so I didn't have sufficient time to read all the... More

I have to admit, I was reluctant to partake of this little museum but the grandkids were in town and wanted to go in after seeing the place as we drove by. A small but very detailed journey into the history of the Superstition area. Well laid out and a natural flow to it. The grandkids had a blast and... More

Small, interesting and ramshackle museum in the Superstition Mountain area, detailing some aspects of the general area, and the much vaunted Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine in particular. Some nice dioramas, and the addition of a volunteer playing a Native American flute added to the experience. The outside exhibits are less exciting although the Elvis Presley church is fairly interesting.

After a drive through this area, we passed this museum so dropped in. It is small, but has a very detailed history of the Spache Trail origins, some excellent geological displays as well as local stories like the lost Dutchman. We were especially interested in their G scale railway which will open in November 2016 _ nicely done! It has... More
