  • We visited on a sunny, mid week day so it was not too busy. You'll enter the gift shop area first which has an extensive variety of stuff. Pay the fee and pass thru the gate. Many interesting photos a...  more »

  • Extremely cool. The most hammered and shredded looking mountain range I have been to. Tons of history and it looks like the setting of a great Western. Also the legend of the Lost Dutchman Mine is centered right around this area, hand it's hard not to get pulled into the lore
  • (my apologies.... my State Park review showed up under the museum) (Here' s the CORRECT info on the museum) This is a FUN place to visit and the price is right. Sometimes it's just no fun going to museums when it breaks the bank.... this one is reasonable. But, more than that, this is a fun place to visit! Tons of local history here.... both ancient and recent. We've been twice and will likely visit again sometime down the road. I WOULD suggest that, if at all possible, you visit as a group and arrange to tour with a docent. We lucked out this last time and drew Jim as our docent for the first part of the tour. What a great time. Remember, if possible, prearrange your group visit and request a docent tour. You will learn LOTS of fascinating information. :) Thanks to the museum, Jim, and staff!
  • Great place to stop. It was our first stop while in the area. Nice gift shop. Lots of cool stuff to see. The model trains were very well laid out. Unfortunately they were not doing demonstrations the day we were there. We will return to see the demonstration another time.
  • I only visited the Elvis Chapel today due to doctor appointments. The host was very friendly and gave us a little of the history. I do plan to go back soon. I know it will be an enjoyable day when I do. This Chapel is Beautiful. Take the family, you can't go wrong on this outing.
  • So much to see in such a small area. From a mine to a train ride to several shops and eateries this place is a cant miss. The separtarium however is the absolute highlight of the place. An amazing exhibit of spiders and snakes and a Gila monster. Managed by a couple that really knows their stuff and cares about the animals in their care. Miss this stop at your own peril.
