Wear good walking shoes as there is open trails to walk. You can get an annual membership for only $35 per family! Includes entrance to the museum, all lectures and shows and 10% off any merchandise.

The grounds are just as interesting if not more than the little museum itself. Good history, beautiful scenery

Very impressed with the artifacts and friendly staff. It hurt to be there on a day with perfect weather, either.

From Our Editors

The sprawling Superstition Mountain Range has been inhabited for more than 9,000 years, but its landscape has remained the same until relatively recently. In the 19th century American settlers moved in, driven by rumors of a bountiful gold mine. The Lost Dutchman Mine spawned a range of new settlements alongside existing American Indian sites here. Though the mine's inhabitants—and the cowboy hats they wore—are long gone, their story lives on at the Superstition Mountain Museum, a 12.5-acre interactive outdoor museum and nature walk dedicated to preserving the area's history. Full-scale recreations of 19th-century buildings include a stage-coach shop, barber shop, 20-stamp gold ore crusher, and the church-turned-film museum Elvis Memorial Chapel. Each building transports visitors back in time with the help of exhibits featuring authentic artifacts and documents such as ancient rock samples that reveal local geology, or art and household items depicting American Indian life.
