  • I had no idea what to expect but to my surprise, it was interesting. My favorite part was feeding the 3 goats they had and the baby chickens. 
  • This is a literal blast from the past. Definitely worth the few dollars to get in; this is an entire town that looks like it literally hasn't been touched in 50 years. Even though I'm not a car buff it was cool to see all the early model Fords and Chevys.
  • a must see if you are a photographer. It is a target rich environment. The owner Don knows everything about all the artifacts he has collected and is obliging for character photos. Entry admission is worth every penny. Great down to earth people.
  • We found this out of the way stop on trip advisor and turned out to be one of the highlights of our Arizona trip for kids and loved everything that there was to do here
  • We plein air painted there in April. Beautiful views. Love all the animals and machinery. Great weather. Nice people.
  • Just a little trivia for anyone visiting the Gold King Mine. The large flat area on your left as you get to the GKM was the original baseball and football field when Jerome was in it's heyday.
