Wonderful place to see some history! But be aware that it can get very hot during the summer. Days that they are open vary.

We drove to Wickenburg to see Vulture mines today, after stopping at the chamber to get directions we were disappointed to find out it is not opening maybe until October. Very unfortunate we didn't see that on the website.

This was my 3rd tour of the mine over the past 20 years, and it was interesting to see the effects of time and weather have had on the original buildings. In my previous 2 visits, they were self-guiding, but this time we had a...More
