Old mining ghost town. Wonderful history here.

I have traveled the 10 miles of dirt and dusty road on several occasions to visit this ghost town. One couple has recreated this old mining town and it is so fun and interesting... read more

It was along drive and the last 10 miles were on poor gravel road. The place was interesting but there was a lot of walking and it was hot. Don't waste time walking to the 70's display, only 2 cars and a kitchen display.

You are sure to enjoy this visit, but be sure to... More

The road to the town is a bit rough, but once you get there, you can spend several hours wandering around the place. I liked the "other side" better than the town because it felt more like a real ghost town. One of the buildings had water in an old refrigerator. That was nice. Buy or bring water. You can... More

Long, long, long drive but once there, it was great. Allow at least an hour to explore this fascinating old mining town. I would compare it to Calico Ghost Town in Barstow, California or maybe Bodie in California but this place actually has old buildings you can go inside to explore and lots of antique old battered furniture, kitchen ware,...

Any time that we have out-of-town guests, we do the Castle Dome museum. The owners have accumulated a ton of buildings and artifacts of the early Arizona mining era, and have situated them in an easy walking tour. Each time that we go, they have added new things, and the tour never goes into boring mode. Access is an excellent... More

Castle Dome Mines Museum & Ghost Town is very unique! There is so much to see and to enjoy. There is a lot of walking. You can bring a picnic lunch and have lunch there. Very interesting, must see if you come to Yuma, AZ

Attraction fee is $10 & it includes 2 areas... the mines & the mining town that they have recreated. Self guided tour. The buildings are well displayed & have written information to read. The staff are dressed in period clothing & we're very informative & helpful. If you are interested in local history or ghost towns this is definately worth... More

Castle Dome is an interesting place; but don't expect the same as level as National Park Service or even many State historic sites. There has been a lot of effort put into re-creating the former mining "old west" town; and it appears to mostly have been a volunteer effort. The write-ups in the buildings and through-out the site are very... More
