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.

If you really love heaps of rusted out junk and a few dilapidated old buildings, this would be worth your while. Otherwise you should skip it. At least it isn’t expensive.

Just amazing graveyard of old and very old trucks and machinery. Great place to stroll around... though my wife didn't entirely agree :-) .

The mining ghost town had some neat historical stuff in it. But most were old cars that didn't really belong in the time period. But the really bad part are the racist items scattered there. Whatever your political affiliation, it's never ok to have anything...More

If you're into history, classic cars, old machinery and anything related to yesteryear, the Gold King Mine and Museum is definitely worth a visit.

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.
