Thompson Arboretum; Smallest Museum; Besh-Ba-Gowa Ruins

Boyce Thompson Arboretum - Named for its benefactor, the Boyce Thompson Arboretum carries on his love of natural science, providing "an appreciation of plants through the fostering of educational, recreational, research, and conservation opportunities associated with arid-land plants." Located in Superior and encompassing over 300 acres, the Arboretum is Arizona's oldest and largest botanical garden; it features the Smith Interpretive Center, Curandero Trail, the Eucalyptus Forest, Ayers Lake, Magma Ridge, the Hummingbird-Butterfly Garden, the Desert Legume Garden, the Cactus Garden, and Wing Memorial Herb Garden. World's Smallest Museum - In Superior, located on historic route US 60, we find a popular roadside attractions, the World's Smallest Museum, which is a garden-shed-sized building with a roof made entirely of beer cans that displays common yet unique artifacts that are monuments to unsung heroes, the hard working people of the world; also you'll find the world's largest Apache Tear gemstone here. Besh-Ba-Gowah Ruins - Located just south of Globe, the Besh-Ba-Gowah ruins, which have been identified by archaeologists as a ceremonial, redistribution and food storage complex of the Salado Indian culture, dates back over 700 years and is one of the largest single-site archaeological collections in the southwest. Here we find typical furnishings of the era and see numerous artifacts, which give us the feel of ancient pueblo life, and help us better understand this remarkably advanced culture. 07/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
