The road to get there is a little scary but the view and the history of this place is really cool! The town is always busy so be prepared to drive around for a while and stalk drivers to find parking. The museum is great if your into history.

My 10 year old gear head son was in heaven going through all the old trucks, motors and engines. The staff was trying to get the old power generator running which fascinated him. My 6 and 4 year olds really enjoyed feeding the goats and chickens.

Not sure how much of it was junk and how much was history. That is probably a good thing. Bring someone who likes old engines and you will learn a lot.

What a fantastic junk yard! It has a working saw mill and soooo many old cars. Neat fun old buildings - dentist, school, assay office, small farm with goats and chickens. If you love old trucks, go visit this neat place! I spent over 2 hours here walking around and enjoying it all.

We truly enjoyed our visit back in time which was well-worth the $5 entry fee. We found a snake which had died with mouth open wide and would like to know what demise would have explained this?

No ghosts here..! Just a junk yard with a ton of very old junk cars and tools galore. Enter through a little gift shop, pay 5.00 to enter the yard and explore the junk I'm sorry to say. At the end you'll find 3 goats to feed. The little shacks you'll pass by are just really old sheds.

This small little ghost town is definitely worth a visit whilst in Jerome. Its only about $5 to enter and you can spend about 30 minutes walking through the old town seeing the old dentists office, the shoe repair place, old cottage and so on. Its really packed with old cars and machines which did not interest me but if... More

Unfortunately the man that created this little town passed away on 10/17/16. We had the pleasure of meeting him 3 years ago when we visited. This is a town taken back in time with so many antiques. There are a few animals around as well, some chickens, goats and two donkeys. it is a real working sawmill as well. A... More

My friend and I stumbled upon this place during a recent trip through Jerome. Old mining town with a vast collection of tools, automobiles, and memorabilia. This is hard to describe--go.

Very inexpensive self guided tour through some Arizona history. Plan on spending a couple hours. Old mining equipment, historic vehicles and other eclectic items!

Thank Mike B
