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.

Waste of time. Never saw so much junk before. Not sure why they have any customers. So many better options.

Very educational! A lot of old cars and trucks and tools. Neat history. Easy to walk around and strollers would be fine.

I learned more from this museum about Arizona in general, and mining in particular, then I ever read in books. A real insight how things were in the late 1800's.

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.
