As the previous reviews stated it is a very rough 10 mile road to get to the ghost town. It consists of several reconstructed buildings with original furnishings. My husband has bad knees & it was difficult for him to step up into the houses. I have to admire the owner for all he's done but I wouldn't recommend it... 更多
It ia about 10 miles on gravel road to this old mine museum. $10 for adults and $6 for kids. They have a huge collection of old mining cabins, hotels, bars, cantinas, banks, and mining equipment. Interesting history of the old timers that lived there in very primitive conditions. The diner has $1 soda and bottled water in the old... 更多
There are 7 miles of rough road. But the 'ghost' town is worth the trip. There are so many buildings from the late 1880s to go through; church with a pump organ and what appears to be a homemade pipe organ system, blacksmith shop, machinist shop, cafe, with a cardboard box to leave your payment for cold water or chips,... 更多
This place is well off of US95. You head East and keep going well after the blacktop ends. I recommend 4 wheel drive as the road goes up a wash. This is an interesting collection of buildings, from old mining times, which have been collected and moved to this location. The main reconstruction is the location. All of the buildings... 更多
It would have been a bit more comfortable if we had waited till later in the year for cooler weather. However it was a great day and learned a lot about the area that we would not have learned on our own.Great for locals, families and the occasional tourist. That's a joke, Yuma has an influx of thousands of tourist... 更多
For many years, I relied on the AAA Tour Books to find worthwhile attractions. The Castle Dome Mines & Ghost Town is not listed, I found it on trip advisor. There are many original buildings and many artifacts on display. Also, you can go into all buildings, nothing is closed off. I spent about 2 hours just roaming around. I... 更多
Spent an afternoon waling through the remnants of Castle dome. The museum was truly a blast from the past. Well worth the $10 admission price. Only downside is the 10 mies of gravel road it took to get there, it felt like riding on a washboard.
lots of old stuff to check out, other than just mining equipment--it's a pretty good drive from yuma, last several miles on a rough gravel road--is it worth the drive?? up to you, but I think it is--the owner is to be commended for rescuing items of historical interest/value that would otherwise be destroyed by the bureau of land management... 更多
I live n AZ,and have been to quite a few places,but this really captures mining and desert living all in one place. What a gret recreation of part of the old town by using the original buildings and then leaving other's in their place.A walk in the desert on a hot day can really be okay if you are prepared... 更多
It was along drive and the last 10 miles were on poor gravel road. The place was interesting but there was a lot of walking and it was hot. Don't waste time walking to the 70's display, only 2 cars and a kitchen display.
