  • Went here after arriving around 1 pm, took us about an hour from downtown Las Vegas. We arrived at 3 and had plenty of time to explore. The sunset light was wonderful. Coat is $10/hour- well worth it  more »

  • Been there several times. Love it there. The people are very friendly and helpful. So many places for photo ops. It's worth the drive. Highly recommend going!
  • It's a nice get away. The mine tour was great!! We learned a little bit of history of how the miners worked plus how the place came about. Worth the drive
  • Fun place to wander. Friendly staff. The tour fills up so if you are pressed for time make a reservation. It is very remote so be prepared.
  • More tourist stop than ghost town. People actually live in many of the buildings. If you want authentic, head to Rhyolite.
  • A nice collection of Retro objects, in an abandoned mining town.
