  • We love this annual stop when we are in the area. You can pay a small fee to go into the museum and view some great mining history. You can walk the grounds for free and take in great views of the Sup...  more »
  • This little spot is fun and informative. After stopping here, we now recognize the area in old westerns.  more »
  • I don't know why you wouldn't stop, it's free, there is much to look at, especially if you are new to the Arizona desert area, great place to see the desert fauna.  more »

  • Pretty fun place to kill some time while on the road. The Elvis themed church was awesome as one could really get a nice gag out of it. It's really fast to explore the entire place but you can get some pretty great photographic shots. Do stay hydrated if you would like to hike the mountain for a bit as they do not have water fountains and will charge you more than usual for some bottled water.
  • Attended Heritage Days @ the museum where we watched beautiful hoop dancing. We also watched a demonstration of the stamp mill. Lots of artisans with beautiful artwork for sale. If you get the chance, don't miss this great little treasure in the desert.
  • Volunteers are awesome! Friendly and knowledgeable. Looking for free stuff to do, check out their lectures, you’ll learn a lot about AJ (and realize there is more to see and do in the area).
  • Wow!!! My friend has lived here for over 10 years and never heard of this amazing little treasure. It is free to visit but filled with incredible history. Many priceless authentic old West artifacts along side detailed descriptions for context. I especially enjoyed speaking with the staff, extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer all questions.
  • Lots of fun! My two year old loved it! Outside is free but the inside does have a museum that cost. It was worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A staff member got the small train going just for my son! It was the best part for him. He even found train sounds on his phone so my son could hear them! It was a wonderful experience. Can't wait to go back!
