Robson's Mining World


category : Pioneer History
Robson's Arizona Mining World takes you back in time to the Nella-Meda gold mining camp, a real mine said to still contain much gold. Set in the Sonoran Desert's saguaro covered hills, it features the world's largest collection of antique mining equipment. Over 30 artifact-filled buildings include the mineral museum, assay office, trading post, general store, blacksmith, barber shop, lodge, print shop and more! Watch how the equipment was used like the old stamp mill, steam generating plant and a working '40s mill.

Explore trails that lead to an ancient Indian campsite, an old stage stop, and miles of untouched desert wilderness! Share in panning for gold and cowboy-style cookouts! This is a land of spectacular scenery, star-filled skies, and a birdwatchers paradise.
