It's nice enough to take a walk around, but unless you're willing to spend a good bit of money then it is hard to last more than 45 minutes or so. Panning for gems was a hit with our kids, and the gunfight was a nice attraction. Definitely better for smaller groups.

We had a great time. We took the 1 1/2 hours desert tour with Smokey and had a great time. Smokey was very informative and exciting. Smokey took us up hills and rocks that I wouldn’t have thought we were able to climb. Lots of great information about the plants, Indians, and prospectors that came to the area. The town was very interesting and entertaining. We came on a Monday and the crowd was perfect. Not too many but just enough. We drove by this weekend and it was pretty busy.

We went here for my fiancé’s son’s birthday. We ate inside and service was great a bit pricey @ 90$ but I not horrible. Then 3 people with me smoke so we go to patio and not long after we was asked multiple times if we wanted a menu as if politely saying we can’t sit out there and there was open tables near by. Then I went back in and ordered bud light and miller lite and a coke the bartender said $18 I was like whoa I guess I ain’t been out in awhile. I reckon the can of beer was $8?

Interesting old historic town representing the rise and fall of a mining community. Authentic environment so folks need little imagination to understand old west life. One and Done but did it well.

Kids got a little bored on the train and mining tour but it was very interesting & fun to learn the history of the mining industry. Stop at the prospector's shop to mine your own stones!! Shops are very cute, too.

Definitely take the mine tour - in my opinion that is the best part. Yes, you can get a feel for what used to be there by strolling around and looking at the old mining machinery, stores, exhibits, etc., but going underground and getting a sense for how the miners worked is definitely worth it. The tour lasts perhaps 15-20 minutes. If you have claustrophobia or any sense of panic going into an elevator or tight spaces this might not be for you. The guide gave a very detailed picture of the events at the mine - there also old mining tools and other items to enhance the presentation. Very interesting.

This is apparently a very popular attraction as there were a lot more people than we expected to find. It is located at an old ghost town, but is more active than a ghost town would normally be. There are a lot of old buildings that now house museums, shops, and attractions, most requiring an entrance fee. You can walk the grounds and see a live gunfight for free. This was a nice stop on our trip between Phoenix and Tucson.

Be aware, there are public restrooms available, but they only handle one at a time, so one of the longest lines of the day will be to use the restroom 🤔

We really enjoyed this replica old west town. The old buildings and shops were fun. The saloon was good for a cold drink. We would have loved to do the mine tour but it was booked til a much later time so I suggest making reservations as soon as you get there and then stroll around the town. There was a replica old west gun fight in the middle of town. Everyone seemed to enjoy it!

On weekends they stage a “gunfight” on the Main Street. I cannot see where shooting guns and killing people counts as entertainment.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Goldfield Ghost Town. It is pet friendly and our two small pups enjoyed it. Don’t miss the train ride… “Cousin Jack” was a great narrator and full of cute jokes. We enjoyed breakfast at the cafe, and the souvenir shops are great and reasonably priced. Gunfights are only on weekends so we missed that. Definitely recommend a cisit here.
