Vulture Mine Tour Information:
Please visit us at Vulture City to remember and celebrate the history of the American West. We are located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, 12 miles outside of Wickenburg, Arizona. The site is open to the public daily from 8am to 3pm. Admission is $15 per person with children under 6 free.
Visitors are thrown back in time by the many faithfully restored buildings and remaining artifacts as they enjoy a 1/2 mile gravel path walk through the once booming mining town.
On Saturdays and Sundays, from late October through April, we offer complimentary guided tours where fabled stories and historical events are colorfully presented. Guided tours start at 10am sharp!
Reservations not needed unless you have a group of 15 or more, please email us for group scheduling.
