Looked like a fun little ghost town. The day we went was ungodly hot and the gift shop at the entrance did not have a/c. Then we found out it was going to cost money to walk... read more

I love junk yards and old cars so I loved this. If you don't , don't go. LOTS of old vehicles , shacks and character. If you are a serious photographer this is a must.

You can absolutely love it or see it as a huge junk yard of rusting memorabilia. My husband was definitely of the former group. He thought it was amazing what had been collected and was happy that it was all higaldy-pigaldy. I would have liked more information on the mine itself and on the mining operation that gave the area... More

Well after coming away from Montezuma's Castle this was a trip back in time and much appreciated by our group of UK bikers. We got to the mine up a delicious twisty road to and through Jerome and ending up on gravel all the way to the Car Park.Once inside through the shop where you could indulge yourself in many... More

We were told by many people to visit Jerome, and so we went. This is an old mining town, there are some tours, but we were disappointed and didn't feel it was worth the time. We visited several of the art studios and the Gold King Mine. There are some resturants there, but we turned around and went back to... More

Looked like a fun little ghost town. The day we went was ungodly hot and the gift shop at the entrance did not have a/c. Then we found out it was going to cost money to walk around the abandoned buildings and it was just too darn hot so we left. Maybe next time, if it's cooler.

I visited last week with my family and was very uncomfortable with the owner's need to negatively air his political views both on a hand written sign inside the Town and verbally to us as visitors. I have no problem with people having strong political beliefs, but feel it is inappropriate for a family tourist attraction to play politics (especially... More

Billed as a ghost town, this is basically a junkyard with some old mining equipment scattered around. A number of the buildings originated elsewhere. If you like old cars and trucks, you'll enjoy looking at the wrecks and restorations hiding around the property, and they have a pretty good collection of older semi-trucks and such. The old sawmill is interesting... More

This is good value and gives a good insight to the town of Jerome. The photographs and descriptions are very interesting and there are several artefacts to look at.

If you are looking for a true mine and ghost town, skip this place. However, if you want to be entertained by 6 or 7 old timers in a run down junk yard, this place is for you. Pros: feeding chickens, donkey and goats; talking to old timers Con: hokey, but fun

We were visiting Jerome, Az and on our way out of town noticed the signs for Ghost Town. Out of curiosity we drove up the unpaved road to this place. As we approached we were tipped off by the collection of rusted out vehicles we viewed on the way. Still curious, we continued on. We parked the car and approached... More
