  • To be clear: this is not a mining museum, it is a restoration/replica of a town which grew up and thrived near a number of gold, silver and lead mines. And it is fantastic! Tons of first-person storie...  more »

  • Really enjoyed this museum! Unfortunately I came in August of last year when it was very hot. I'm from New York City so I couldn't tolerate it very well, that or the deafening quiet 😳 But that's a story for another day When we first arrived there was no one inside but the sign said open so we went in and began looking around. A few minutes down the line an older gentleman came over and we paid him the entry fee and he had a discussion with my husband about a hiking area on site and also gave us some information about the museum itself and the surrounding area. He was very helpful but be aware that there are NO military discounts at this museum which is rather atypical of Yuma. Larger than expected and was relatively quiet in terms of other people visiting. I believe one or two other groups came shortly after us. Overall I had a really nice time but I'm a big history buff. Would recommend!
  • Love this place. I spent all afternoon here. Mining lore and relics displayed in old buildings assembled like an old town. Very well put together.
  • I loved it! It was a great experience and well worth the time it takes to get there. So much to see, so go early, wear good walking shoes, and bring water. Bring your own lunch too because we were there 5 hours and we were very hungry afterwards with no place to purchase food. Highly recommend this ghost town!
  • Just had my second visit, $10 per person, kids free, Cash only and remember to bring water and a snack. You can easily spend hours here.... I personally have fun reading about the Castle Dome citizens and the history of this town.. It truly is worth the stop just remember to wear good shoes!
  • Disappointed. The leaflet that we got at the hotel where we were logged indicated that the Castle Dome Mines Museum & Ghost Town opened at 10am. After driving the 45 minutes to get there we found that they were close. If they are putting leaflets in hotel lobbies in order to attract visitors, then they need to include the hours that are posted on their sign.
