This place was packed. We were there just in time to see the Yellow Bird Hoop dancers perform! We also watched a demonstration of the stamp mill. And of course, you cannot miss the Elvis Chapel. This desert gem is a must see!

This little spot is fun and informative. After stopping here, we now recognize the area in old westerns.

I don't know why you wouldn't stop, it's free, there is much to look at, especially if you are new to the Arizona desert area, great place to see the desert fauna.

The docents were hands down the highlight of this stop. They were knowledgeable and kind. Clearly enthusiastic about the area they love. He museum itself was ho-hum. But at $5 entry fee it was worth a quick walk through.

There are several replica buildings of the Old West.. For most of the replica old West buildings, you can only peer in via the doorway or window. You walk around and go from building to building and look inside. No history or information except movie...More

Was looking for something to do near Mesa to kill a few hours. Chose this mueseum solely for its name. Was oddly interesting for such a small mueseum. Loved all the Native (Apache) stuff and the Dutchman’s treasure! :)
