If you want to escape the heat and find a place that doesn’t cost much to get in, the Superstition Mt museum is one of the best places to check out! It only cost us $10 bucks!!! For two people, that’s cheap! As you park in the museum parking lot, you get the view of the magnificent Superstition Mts.! What a view!!!!
After you see these animals, comes the Ancient Indian artifacts from hundreds of years ago!

The museum also teaches about the Spanish & Mexican Period. The Peralta stones. Even though there is no documentation, people still believe they are treasure maps leading to treasure.
Also educated you about the Military in Az. And about the Buffalo soldiers. There are great informative displays about the gold seeker, Jacob Waltz. To this day gold seekers still search for the lost Dutchman mine.
There is also displays of the great artist Ted Degrazia!
Also the museum talks about a man named Hacksaw Tom who was known in 1905-1915 for robbing the stagecoaches that traveled the Apache trail.
