If you like "American Pickers" this is your place. Lots of old stuff (cars, assorted machinery, buildings, etc.) all scattered around this quirky (but fun) property. While we didn't meet the owner, Don - we can vouch for him. He discovered that my wife had accidentally left her wallet, and he made sure that we were contacted and it was... More

This a interesting place to visit. Lots of old antiques to see and wonder what the heck some of them are. They have beautiful chickens with amazing colors. Be sure to say hello to the Mule. They use to let him just roam around but now keep him in a pen. Sad to see but sure i t is to... More

From cars to chainsaws to tricycles and animals, the Gold King Mine has it all. My boyfriend and I were the first ones to arrive early Saturday morning. The sign on the door says open at 10 but once they saw us waiting, the owner-Don-let us come in. This is a self guided tour for $5 but Don was more... More

Had no idea how neat the museum would be. There were so many old and interesting cars, trucks, tools - including a dentist office and school house from yesteryear. Wish we had looked up Don Robertson before we went and knew who it was that was taking so much time sharing with us. Check him out on u-tube before you... More

This place has the best old cars. We also loved the wood shop. The staff was really friendly and informative.

The Gold King Mine in Jerome Arizona is the real deal. Old worn out antique cars, trucks and buildings from yesteryear that you can walk amongst and let your imagination wander while being followed by a spoiled old mule waiting for a handout! Don Robertson is a piece of living history himself. I have met him on a couple occasions... More

This is basically a junkyard, but a very interesting junkyard with some very old and interesting cars. If you don't like wandering round old decaying cars interspersed with chickens and goats and some mining memorabilia, you are probably not going to like it. If you do, you will. If you like playing fallout, you are going to love. Fantastic opportunity... More

$5 per person to enter what is really a junk yard. There are a few old buildings but they are stuffed with junk most of it unrelated to that time period. if you like old trucks and all sorts of junk, this is the place for you. We didn't spend a whole tot of time here...Not worth your effort, time... More

This was the second visit at the Gold King. While visiting Jerome with friends, we told them they would really enjoy this place, and we weren't wrong! The four of us had loads of fun touring the "junk yard" filled with interesting antiques, taking pictures, and feeding the goats and chickens. The highlight of the afternoon was talking with the...

Our family is very familiar with mining towns. Half live in Colorado where there are several wonder mining towns and the rest are from California and had relatives living along highway 49, in Columbia, which is next to Sonora, CA. Parking is a bit easier in almost all those other locations - while Jerome it is difficult and limited to... More
