This quirky roadside attraction is a true testament to the quirky road-trip culture. We can’t quite tell you what The Thing is because it would ruin the fun, but we can tell you that it involves dinosaurs and extraterrestrial beings!

Nestled between Benson and Willcox this historic facility offers educational experiences for everyone. Visitors learn about Southwestern Native American history/culture. Explore archaeology, art, anthropology and more at this unique museum.
The Benson Museum is perfect for getting a look into Arizona’s deep history. With tons of information about local history that covers topics like local figures, the railroad, and even Arizona’s earliest known inhabitants.
Benson is a living ghost town used for productions, events and tours and embodies the Old West lifestyle. Many structures were built on site but some are from other rural communities like the “town hall” building transported from Safford!
