Superstition Mountain Museum

Join the thousands of hikers, horseback riders, photographers and tourists who visit the Superstition Mountains in Central Arizona each year. The rugged beauty, as well as the history and mystery surrounding this locale, combine to create an irresistible pull on the hearts and minds of visitors.

The Superstition Mountain Lost Dutchman Museum, lying on a 15-acre parcel in the shadow of the beautiful Superstition Mountains, is the keeper and purveyor of the colorful tales of bygone days, both true and mythical, regarding the area.

The museum, located on Highway 88 just east of Apache Junction, Arizona, is comprised of a central 4,900-square-foot exhibit hall and gift shop. It includes numerous outdoor structures and exhibitions including the Apacheland Barn and the Elvis Chapel—the last surviving structures from Apacheland Movie Ranch—a huge working 20-stamp gold mill, a historical model railroad, Western storefronts, a gift shop/bookstore and a labeled nature trail.

Walking tours of the grounds are free. The museum gallery contains historical artifacts and has recently been remodeled.
