This was basically an overpriced junk yard. We were super excited to see a mine, come to find out there was only one cart. The rest was somebody's junk yard of things we didn't care to see. And the poor animals that were caged up...More

This was an unplanned side trip and an interesting one to say the least. It's very rich in history, a lot of antique mine equipment, vintage trucks, and animals. I believe the local population is (2). The museum is a must see.

I personally can't answer that. But you can call the souvenir store I believe and they can answer that question. You can go to the website for the info.

I would be very careful if I took my pet. There are donkeys, chickens and other animals "free ranging" the area.
