Vulture City 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.
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. Explore the Assay Office, Cookhouse, Brothel, Post Office, Henry Wickenburg’s Original Home and of course the infamous Hanging Tree!
The site is open to the public for self-guided tours daily from 9am to 3pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, from late October through Mid May, we offer a 2 hour Guided Tour at 10am. Remember to dress for the desert (we do not recommend sandals!).
Reservations not required unless you have a group of 15 or more, please email us for group scheduling and/or if you require special assistance.
Please note: an adult must accompany any child under the age of 18. In addition. If the adult accompanying the child is not a parent or legal guardian, the Parental Consent Guardianship Form (available here) must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. This form must be presented at the time of the tour, and the acting legal guardian must have ID that matches the name on the form.
