Lots of character. Endless paths to wonder with old things everywhere. But... we like to photograph and this place is a goldmine of opportunity. If you re not truck or junk people it might not be your cup of tea.

The scenery is a perfect stage for my photography. I was saddened to here of the loss of the founder. We talked many... More

If you love old cars and trucks in glorious stages of rust and decline, this is your place. They are sitting all around, mostly in open air, and many are special and lots of fun to walk around to view from all angles. For old car lovers, this is a must. The rest of the "ghost town" isn't much to... More

Well, for my husband, he died and went to junk yard heaven! He loves old cars, motorcycles, tools, motors, etc. This self-guided outdoor museum is so weird it's interesting! The first thing I thought is if Mike and Frank from American Pickers ever heard of this place. I don't think anything is for sale, though. It's very interesting history of... More

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?
