Castle Dome Ghost Town & Mine Museum

Ever dream about being in one of those towns in the old westerns you saw growing up? Well Castle Dome Ghost Town & Mine Museum makes it come true as you walk down the dusty streets and step into cantinas, hotels, and shops exactly as they were 100 years ago. The museum also provides a glimpse of what it was like to live and work as a miner by providing visitors with guided tours of the Hull Mine.
