    We've seen programs about the Lost Dutchman's gold on TV, saw the scenery around the Superstition Mountains and wanted to see it for ourselves while on vacation. We stopped in the museum to get inform...  more »

    This is the cutest little chapel and museum, you are really surprised when you walk in and there is a big statue of "Elvis Presley" with his guitar on the stage in the front, you can take your picture...  more »

    A museum that brings together buildings that were used as a film set in the golden years of cinema Westerns in Hollywood. It really is very pleasant to walk in and out of the buildings preserved very well by talented and delightful volunteers who give advice and explanations to visitors and are also kindly take pictures.

    What fun this place is! It's also mostly run by volunteers. The gift shop was well stocked and the stamp mill is one of a kind. Be sure to go by and watch a demo of the mill for the full effect. An outdoor train exhibit was also there, but I understand that may be seasonal due to the extreme heat. Many movies were filmed on-site or in buildings that are restored at this location. Definitely worth a stop.

    Cool for a couple hour walk around. The free parts are awesome. The little paid museum is OK but kinda pricey for what it is. A lot of history and famous actor filmed here in the 50s 60s. Worth a check out if your in the area and much better then the the goldfield ghost town across the street where everything cost money to do.

    From the blast of cool air from a hot July am..we visited after our flat iron trail hike. 4th of July am. Friendly, extremely nice, folks said hi. we got our cold water and a ticket to the past. The museum is fascinating for ANY history buff but for the DUTCHMAN hunters....a gold mine. (Hahaha). From the ever amazing Peralta stones to the gorgeous DE GRAZIA drawings and paintings...history is in your face. The small buttons, Mexican disemboweling knife (engraved), Indian jewelry (real), bits of gold ore, just tons of tangible old west items. Sandals from caves...I can go on and on. It's worth a visit and the few $. Just amazing and real.

    I enjoyed learning more about Arizona from this Museum. The people are friendly and nice. There's quite a bit of history in such a small place which was a pleasant surprise for me. This is a must see for AZ history lovers.

    The outdoor museum is very informative on mining, an actual massive working ore crusher. A fair size complete miniature train layout, that you can walk around. A lot of other small buildings to check out. It's all free but they do accept donations. There is a fee to go to the small inside museum. Definitely recommend checking it out.
