Cute little place with lots of old buildings and junky cars and vehicles. You have to pay like $5 each to get in. Be careful walking as it’s very rocky.

The gold king mine offers a very unique and honest view into the past at a very reasonable price. With antique cars, an operating lumber mill and authentic mining equipment, there is something for everybody. Highly recommend this for anybody visiting Jerome.

If you really love heaps of rusted out junk and a few dilapidated old buildings, this would be worth your while. Otherwise you should skip it. At least it isn’t expensive.

The mining ghost town had some neat historical stuff in it. But most were old cars that didn't really belong in the time period. But the really bad part are the racist items scattered there. Whatever your political affiliation, it's never ok to have anything...More

A few old mining shacks filled with themed antiques (dentist, cobbler, laundry etc), lots of old cars and machines. Depends what your interests are. My husband enjoyed looking at the old machines. I’m sure if things were for sale instead of just to view it...More

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.
