We visited the ghost town and found it to be very interesting. The old buildings are open to go through, and refreshments are available for purchase. We took lots of pictures of Castle Dome which was located in the mountains behind the town.

This town and Museum is a spectacular site of History extremely well worth the short drive from Yuma. It is a place where you do not want to be in a hurry, the site is a true movie of history and a place where you must let your mind wander and drift with what you are looking at. In every... More

The website stated it was open on Sundays, drove through desert, unpaved and unmaintained roads (happily we had taken our pickup, not our nice car). When we finally arrived it was CLOSED with a sign reading "call for times" during the summer!. We ventured on to see where the road went and aftter driving for several hours at 1 or... More

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
