My son is a car buff so we had to make the trip to Jerome to see this collection of antique cars. We felt like it was well worth the trip up to Jerome. It isn't an organized museum but we didn't care. We enjoyed just walking through the yard to see everything Mr Robertson has collected throughout the years.... More

Great stop! Very unique place and people. If you like to see and learn about mining, old Americana, then definitely stop in and meet/speak with the Owner Don. We also spoke with Rick who gave us a lot of info on the town and history of the place.

This place has real potential and could really be a neat place to visit. The whole place is like paying $5.00 to walk though a junk yard. It has some highlights like the old sawmill (They only ran it for a very short time) and if your into old cars there are plenty. Lots of old mining equipment as well... More

They have lots of hummingbirds in front of the main building. Very fun to watch and take pictures. Nice little gift shop. You pay to walk around old buildings and old vehicles. Do not know how much is original. Didn't do a ghost tour.

We have been visiting the Gold King mine for 10 years. The owner Don is awesome, what a character and the stories that man has are fascinating. The collection of old trucks, mining equipment and saw mill are incredible. A friend said it looks like an organized hoard, which it does. If you're willing to look past that aspect and... More

Stopped by and toured the grounds and saw what mining was like back in the late 1800's/early 1900's. Arizona is still a center for copper mines, and this one was extremely productive when it was active pulling in over $100K per day in gold and copper. It is a bit off the beaten path to get there and it is... More

Was there not knowing what to expect. Odd place where the owner build this dragon like pump that makes a racket and is a hoot. The old building are authentic and I walked through spider webs on a well traveled trail where ALL people were walking through, patted off, walked again, more webs. We are talking solid webs, and could... More
