For many years, I relied on the AAA Tour Books to find worthwhile attractions. The Castle Dome Mines & Ghost Town is not listed, I found it on trip advisor. There are many original buildings and many artifacts on display. Also, you can go into all buildings, nothing is closed off. I spent about 2 hours just roaming around. I... More

Spent an afternoon waling through the remnants of Castle dome. The museum was truly a blast from the past. Well worth the $10 admission price. Only downside is the 10 mies of gravel road it took to get there, it felt like riding on a washboard.

lots of old stuff to check out, other than just mining equipment--it's a pretty good drive from yuma, last several miles on a rough gravel road--is it worth the drive?? up to you, but I think it is--the owner is to be commended for rescuing items of historical interest/value that would otherwise be destroyed by the bureau of land management...

I live n AZ,and have been to quite a few places,but this really captures mining and desert living all in one place. What a gret recreation of part of the old town by using the original buildings and then leaving other's in their place.A walk in the desert on a hot day can really be okay if you are prepared...

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.

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 and many things have been added over the past several years we have visited it. 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
