Drove onto this by accident while exploring Jerome. Well worth the 5$ to tour . Old cars, buildings,and mining equipment galore giving you a small glimpse of what it was like to live in a mining town. Depending on your interest you could spend hours...More

The entrance fee is nothing for what you get here. The staff around were super friendly, informative and approachable. They all added to the experience. Everything strewn around the grounds told a story, so do stop to look and query it all. So much to...More

It was okay for the price. I am glad I went. A lot of cool things to look at. It was more like a mine junk yard though.

Cute little place with lots of old buildings and junky cars and vehicles. You have to pay like $5 each to get in. Be careful walking as it’s very rocky.

The gold king mine offers a very unique and honest view into the past at a very reasonable price. With antique cars, an operating lumber mill and authentic mining equipment, there is something for everybody. Highly recommend this for anybody visiting Jerome.

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.
