  • Great southwestern / Arizona spot. Take your friends from out of town here. The staff are all friendly and everything is clean. It will take you back in time. There is a great gift shope with Arizona and southwestern stuff. I his a bag of polished rocks.
  • 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.
  • I enjoy being at this museum. The people are friendly and helpful. So many interesting exhibits. The stamp mill is operational and demonstrations are given on certain days. This summer they also showed some of the old westerns in the Chapel and it will become a yearly occurance. At different times of the day you can hear the docents tell you some interesting stories about the history of the area and you might be lucky enough to even hear some music from native flutes. Watch for the pass books for the kids. Who is Hacksaw Tom? What is an arista? "Wow! model trains!" mmmmmmmm sasparilla!! Did you see that tree trunk on the patio? How many animals are carved into it? Birds, lizzards.....native people and so much more can you find. AND SO MUCH MORE I had and still find more I have seen before!
  • An awesome historic place. If you're a fan of Westerns, this is a must see! Also, get all the information of the Lost Dutchman you'd ever need at their museum.
  • Great little museum! There are some attractions and a gift shop you can browse, and there's also a museum part you have to pay a small fee to visit but it's worth it. If you're strapped for cash, there are still things worth seeing outside that you don't have to pay for.
