and Family Fun around the town of Benson.
Recommended by: Gloria Phelps
There is cowboy stuff, it looks like an old store that was a museum. There is an old bell you can ring, a mind cart from a real gold mind, and a Dentist chair and outside is a giant wood but it is really a rock - but it was wood that got old.
The museum is an old general store, made into the area museum, there are numerous items on display including ancient grinding stones to area antiques, an old Wells Fargo Truck from the Stage Coach lines.
Rotating exhibits include fine arts, ceramics & quilt show. A neat little museum - worth a free stop in Benson on your way thru, you might also want to make a quick stop at the Old Train depot now serving as the area visitor center.
There is some good restaurants (and one not so good one)and a park, library and a train car. Pretty small town but good place to go around Az from if your are looking for inexpensive lodging! Dirt bike, Desert trekking, 4x4, San Pedro river, Observatories and more in the local driving area!
