Went with a group to see this attraction. It was very fun. BEWARE THE TRIP IS A VERY BUMPY ONE. Make sure you take a car that can handle the bumps and dirt roads.

The owners are always bringing out more items from storage as they can make room for them so we love going there often just to see what is new

The road out to the place is pretty rough but our Ford Focus did fine. The cost was a little expensive for just walking around a bunch of old buildings but they do have a military discount. There is a lot to look at and if you take the time to notice everything, you could be there for a couple... More

It was hot! Hot! Hot! But we had fun. The museum is 10 miles off the main road but the road was well maintained so pretty much any vehicle could get to the mines. We also saw a huge weather dirgible go up as we were driving out. Interesting place. Gotta love a good ghost town!

It was a cute place but I wish I knew that there was 8 miles of unpaved road it took us about 30 min to get from the end of the paved road to entrance of the ghost town. We also didn't realize it was going to be $10 per adult and $5 for kids cash only. Glad we had... More

This place is great. My wife and I saw many things we never expected. I must be a desert rat at heart... I wish we could time travel and see what it was like when all these mining things happened...we got really close.. much work went into this place..and more is being done. We got a first rate education and... More

We had one afternoon available for some fun and decided this was the activity for us. It was about 45 minutes away from where we were staying in Yuma. GPS had a hard time locating the address, so we typed in the name and found it that way. There is about a 6 mile stretch of rough dirt road you'll... More

I first went to this museum about six years ago and have been the times since. They seem to add things every year which is good for everyone.

This is a remote place - about 45 minute drive from Yuma. DO NOT GO TO THE ADDRESS listed on tripadvisor. To get to the Ghost Town follow 95N and exit at mile marker 55. The place itself is a collection of wooden buildings artificially cramped together in an attempt to preserve an old western town. It's quite interesting, but... More

If you are near Yuma and love the old west you have to check this out. The owner buys this place in 1994 and moves all the buildings within a few miles to one location when the BML is going to destroy them. It's just not the buildings but also all the furniture, tools, mining equipment and everything else you... More
