The buildings are very interesting, the gold mine tour is as well. I really liked the steak dinner and Cowboy Beans and potato that come with it. Fun when family and friends come to town.

First time coming here and we had a great time. The sites are beautiful. It was very educational. We took the train ride, which I would highly recommend. The bundled package is best, which we originally purchased but then the monsoon blew in and we waited over an hour for it to clear. We ended up doing the train ride... More

The Mine tour was both fun, informative and Corny ;) it was about 30 minutes and it was more of a history lesson in a mine. We then went to the mystery shack which was... More

We did the combo -- train ride, mine tour, and Mystery House. They don't take credit or debit cards, and it's close to $20 a person for the combo. The coffee house/bakery doesn't take cards either. The train ride circles the town and gives you great views and an interesting history of the area. It was fun, and the train... More

A fascinating insight into the life of an old gold mining town. I particularly liked the saloon where the barman will take you on in a game of chess for a beer! Highly recommended

Very touristy little place but lots of fun. Re live what life was like in the 1800's and enjoy the beautiful setting in the desert.

A friend and I visited here in July. We stumbled across this place through trip advisor and thought why not? The desert scenery around the place is beautiful. The ghost town itself is kind of small. It's still pretty cute, though. The history surrounding the place is very interesting. We did the mine tour and the train ride. Nothing too... More

A good digestive walk, perfect for kids or people from the east coast, otherwise, pass. It has a tiny train going around the village and a mine (combined ticket). At the very end of the village, past the church, there is a shooting gallery. It's all electronic so 1 - cheap, 2 - green!

Lots of good old Goldfield Ghost Town history. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Great for adults and kids. Would recommend not going in the summer, unless you go as soon as they open. Would like more merchants to take credit cards. Most only took cash.

It was ok. Disappointed there wasn't more to do in the attraction. Many of the shops were closed. But the kids enjoyed the antique mine equipment. It gave us something to do in between the monsoon rains! Note to self, travel to Arizona during peak season, not monsoon season!
