Not quite a ghost town, but still pretty cool if you're in the area already

The cashier was not the most friendly but once you get past her the place has some pretty cool little buildings in it. Watch your step when you go into some though, they are old... read more

About 1o minutes ouside of Jerome on the road that runs alongside the fire station is the Gold King Mine and Ghost Town. We did not see any ghosts but the place is rammed with old cars, trucks, motorbike sand old mining machinery. It might not suit everyone, but for me it was really good to look around the old...

It's a difficult drive to get to the mine. Which wouldn't be so bad if it was worth it. It's not. Very old and run down. Looks like it might have been popular 20 years ago......

We spent 2 hours in the mine exploring. We really had a great time, and there are lots of things to see. They have a cool canon that the shoot off now and then that shakes the entire town. Good for the entire family.

This was by far a great surprise! Driving the back way down from Perkinsville, we looked down and saw what looked like truck heaven and decided to pop in. This ghost town and museum has so much history and if you like trucks and old equipment it is fascinating! we stayed for hours and got to see most everything, and... More

The ghost town was actually pretty interesting, a lot of old abandoned buildings and antiques that gives a glimpse into life at the time. However, there way too many rusty old trucks on the property and they should probably only keep the interesting ones and get rid of the others. My biggest issue with the place is that I didn't...

It is 5 dollars and change per person, there is free parking, and a gift shop to buy items if you wish. This place is a must see! It is filled with incredible items from the past. It is spooky, interesting, fun, and very unique. You can feed goats and chickens, take tons of photos, and explore old buildings. The... More

If you are looking for a real mine...keep going. This is really a old truck junk yard that is organized. Now, If you like taking pictures of old and rusty things then you are in photography heaven. Lots to see and the owner is friendly and will tell you about everything if you ask. It is one of those places... More

The cashier was not the most friendly but once you get past her the place has some pretty cool little buildings in it. Watch your step when you go into some though, they are old so not in the best of shapes. I was pretty disappointed that you couldn't go into the grave digger's place or the bordello, too. But...

Forget this tourist trap! It is basically a large collection of junk cars, buses, heavy machinery, & junk amassed over several years & passed off as a "museum." To even get to the restrooms, I had to beg for permission, as it was in the area beyond the "admission door," where they wanted $5/person to see their junk!! I took... More

Quite a collection of very old trucks, cars, and machinery. Worth a visit, once. Operating lumber mill and a few animals. Some very old buildings and great artifacts in each.
