Superstition Mountain Museum

Field review by the editors.

Apache Junction, Arizona

This rugged part of the desert Southwest is rumored to be the site of the fabled Lost Dutchman Gold Mine. The museum displays 23 maps that allegedly lead to it, some of them scrawled on rocks.

The Elvis Presley Memorial Chapel is also part of the 12-acre museum complex, and is available for weddings.
