Overview

Please call for reservations during the warmer months "What you will see here is a remnant town which stood larger than Yuma in 1878. Her weather beaten buildings remain great day trip in the lower Colorado river in an area little changed from the 1800's. The mills stand silent, housing original boiler, stamp mill, and elevator, as if tomorrow they will awaken to the thunderous roar of steel crushing rock. The boardwalks still creak, the church bell rings out, the five saloons just await the story of their last shootout. Over 50 building in 3 areas are now open, with more history being added. April 15 through September you will need to call for hours. October 1st through April 30th we are open 7 days a week.

We took the Hull Mine tour. Under ultra-violet lights, the walls glow with eleven vivid colors, including reds, blues, greens and purples. In a different part of the mine, we explored a desperado’s hideout. The museum with more than 50 buildings salvaged and rebuilt from...More

It's just a few old buildings that went to rot in the desert, and the owners are trying to get rich off it....it's a 5 minutes at best, not worth the drive, the dust/dirt/grime or the cost. Other places near Tucson are FAR better than...More

If you think Disneyland is Main St USA, I will agree . If you want History as people actually lived , This is the place

Be sure to go on the tour of the Hull Mine. Worth every penny! You will be traveling on a gravel road but in very good condition. Allow at least 1/2 day. Plan to go again!

Even though the road to travel on is awful seeing the old mining town was so interesting. Didnt know about the tour into mine so couldnt do that since reservations needed to be made before hand. So much to see.

Drove out to Castle dome, even though it was 94 degrees. The last 7 miles of the road is unpaved which makes it bumpy and dusty, but anyone can get there. There's a great collection of items from 1800's. The buildings are in good condition....More

Drive to the middle of nowhere to see a bunch of old buildings @ $15 per adult and $7 per child is significantly beyond a waste of time and money.

Seven miles of gravel road through military proving grounds with no stopping signs. Don't know if worth the $15 pp but if you like viewing old buildings and items from the past, you can spend a couple of hours there. Was a silver mining town...More

Ok, so not real off-roading, but the 7 miles of gravel road leading to the area is certainly an adventure in itself. This place “strongly prefers cash” so make sure you have some. It was $15pp (adults). Follow the signs to the museum gift shop,...More

Sorry I can not answer the question, the tour was closed the day we arrived. They did say a reservation would be a very good idea.

No idea - I'd search Yuma resources or see if Uber or Lyft will give you a quote!
