Superstition Mountain Museum Grounds
We spent a lot of time outside visiting the areas, such as the Boot Hill, 1/8 Inch Mine, The Stamp Ore Mill, the Model Railroad Setup, Apacheland Barn, and Elvis Memorial Chapel.
There are plenty of signs to point you in the right direction if you lose your map.
We took a stroll on the well-maintained hiking trail to visit the Memorial Bench.

We enjoy learning about the past and seeing historical sites. Visiting Superstition Mountain Museum allowed us to learn more about the area. The grounds were very nice to walk around on such a beautiful day.
