This was fun and entertaining by Don “The Old Miner”. This is an old rustic graveyard of vehicles and machinery with character designed around an old mine and historic buildings. A must see if you enjoy taking pictures, there are a few animals for the...More

After reading the reviews we decided to try the Gold King Mine Museum and Ghost Town. It was worth the drive up the hill and provided amusement around every corner. The layer of dust on the items in the old buildings appeared to be intentional...More

It's not really a ghost town in the wild west sense. It's an eclectic collection of old trucks and antiques. If you love those things then go. But don't take kids expecting to see a ghost town.

Save your money on this attraction, folks. The brochure makes it look quaint, but once you shell out the cash and walk through the doors, it's nothing but a junkyard. There are so many broken down car/trucks that you can't really get close enough to...More

This is truly a unique place and experience, and is not for everyone. As someone mentioned before, great for "gearheads". Things are set around in a seemingly disorganized manner, but it doesn't seem to really matter. There is always a "treat" just around the next...More

We have been to Don's Gearhead Paradise twice, and can't wait to go back again. If you are looking for a Yuppie centered, artsy-fartsy polished museum for narrowminded people, this is NOT the place to go. BUT, if you, like me, are totally engrossed in...More

We went for an afternoon, on a Sunday. We had wonderful weather and the price of admission was so reasonable. We had to drive down a non paved road for about a mile, I would guess. We had met with the owner previously, and we...More

This is a fantastic collection of AMERICAN built vehicles, machines and equipment. I would not call it a ghost town as much as a mining museum. Most of the equipment is stored outdoors and is rusty. Most of the vehicles are in terrible to poor...More

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.
