Mission Statement

The Superstition Mountain Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation dedicated to preserving and presenting the history, legends, and lore of the Superstition Mountain region. The museum was established by the Superstition Mountain Historical Society, Inc in December of 1980 and housed a small exhibit building at the Goldfield Ghost Town. The current location opened for public view on October 12, 2003, presents 14 acres of exhibits depicting the history of the early Native Americans who worked the desert soil, to ranchers who ran range cattle across the rugged terrain - to miners who toiled in search of a better life.

Description

The Superstition Mountain Museum is located on Apache Trail (route 88) at the base of the Superstition Mountains in Apache Junction, Arizona. Our museum is operated by a management team comprised of selected Board members, volunteers, and paid employees. We rely on revenue incurred from admission fees, gift shop sales, donations, fundraisers and membership. During our active season October thru April, we hold classes, present free lectures, and host specialized cultural events that could not happen without the help of our volunteers. We welcome winter-visitor volunteers!
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with our Mining exhibit and G-scale Model Train exhibit. No former experience is necessary because all training will be provided. email volunteers.smhs@gmail.com for more info.
