This museum has collections and exhibits related to the history of Apache Junction and the Superstition Mountains near Phoenix. The 12-acre property includes the Audie Murphy Barn and Elvis Memorial Chapel from the Apacheland Movie Ranch, which opened in 1960 and was later destroyed in a fire. The collections also include Native American artifacts and historic mining equipment. A G-scale model train layout with 1500 feet of track recreates the area in the early 1900s. The latter is open in fall, winter and spring.
