The Superstition Mountain Museum has finished an extensive reimagining of its history galleries and will open them to the public on Saturday, Nov. 7.
“Since the museum’s temporary shutdown in March, and then over the following several months of limited activity, the familiar indoor-history displays were transformed. Exhibits were dismantled, restored, reconfigured and relocated into a retelling of the region’s legends and lore,” according to a release.
“With the able assistance of Michelle Reid of Museum Pros, Superstition Mountain Historical Society historians consolidated the earlier detailed displays into a coherent narrative that includes early desert dwellers — indigenous peoples; Spanish exploration; mountain men; local military presence; Barry Goldwater’s memorabilia; mining and resources; Dutch Hunters; ranchers and settlers; women/children/clothing; local weaponry; and the construction of the Roosevelt Dam. New visitors will be astounded by the rich history of the region and those that have visited the galleries in the past will get a whole new experience,” the release states.
The Superstition Mountain Museum, 4087 N. Apache Trail (State Route 88), is open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. Call 480-983-4888 for more information or go to SuperstitionMountainMuseum.org.
