$ 5.00 PER PERSON. This was the little town of Haynes Az . A suburb of (Jerome Billion Dollar Copper Camp). They mined gold here from 1890 to 1914. The mine shaft goes down 1270 ft.

We do offer gold or gem panning .The tour is self guided with the employees performing exhibits such as 1914 gas Whitte saw mill, black Smith making knives etc. , various antique engines and mining equipment demonstrations. You can walk through some of the old buildings such as dentist, school, assay, etc. They are filled with old antiques. There is a unique collection of antique trucks, cars , motorcycles ( varies types of vintage transportation). The kids love our petting zoo ( Pedro the donkey is world famous .) There are mini goats, Bella the mini pig, chickens and Miss Bessie the orphan calf.) Great country gift shop with unique gifts.

It’s quite a drive through the country but it’s well worth it. The stuff that they have is just unbelievable. Take a walk through time and enjoy.

Awesome old vehicles, cool old buildings, some farm animals (chickens, mule, donkey, pig and goats), and a mellow, old cat named Gizmo who rotates between watching the chickens, and sleeping on the jewelry counter. The $5 admission price is worth it, for the nostalgia and...More

This was a nice 2 3 hour stop on a visit to the deserts around Phoenix. There was a nice shoot out drama. There were limited offerings of places to visit. The price was right as there were no entry fees for the town proper....More

Probably not for everyone. Ghost town recreated using several buildings and relics from the past. I found it quite interesting, but I like looking at old cars trucks and antiques. Low cost to enter and a nice way to spend an hour or so.

We drove up there to see the old mining area. There are tons of rusting vehicles and old buildings. Don’t think it was worth the $5/person to walk around, but maybe others would disagree. They need to do more if they want to attract visitors.

This is not much of a Ghost town not much in the way of buildings but lots of old vehicles. Very interesting place. Wish it wasn't so cluttered.

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.
