Some people may just see junk with all the old equipment and vehicles but those that like history or appreciate seeing old stuff especially photographers would have a field day exploring - young families may not so people need to know what they are going...More

It's a junk yard with a message, from the early 1900's to the 1960's (kinda). Mining equipment, trucks, tools, saw mill, and much, much more. Don't drive to Jerome, just for this, but if you are there, don't miss it. Especially, if you ae older,...More

My husbands first comment - "We paid money to see someone else's junk. I feel like we are on Sanford and Son." Some of the junk was interesting to look at but I felt this was a waste of time.

This was very fun and full of interesting history. Ignore the prior poor review.. I don't know anything about cars but this man's collection of artifacts was beyond any museum. And less expensive. American Pickers would love this place!!!

We were very disappointed with the ghost town. Vehicles of every description were scattered throughout the area. Unless you know your vehicles you may as well not bother. The walk ways were poorly constructed and real messy. There did not seem to be any rhythm...More

We heard about Jerome from A Day in the West Jeep driver. He recommended Gold King Mine. We are glad that we made the trip. It's set above the town and is a hillside of old machinery mostly comprised of classic cars/trucks. There are old...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.

It's a very narrow road to get there with steep grades and hairpin-type turns.
