We took our children here 30 years ago and got a nice picture of them in the yellow coats and helmets. This time we took their children and did the same pose! The visitor center is toasty warm in the winter with a huge fireplace. They have a nice selection of minerals and fossils on display and/or to buy and... More

What you read from other tripadvisors is accurate. Nice gift shop and fireplace while you wait for your tour. You put on disgusting yellow coats and even more disgusting helmets. Sure they spray a little "something" in the helmets after that last tour group ends, but still. YUCK! I felt like my head itched all night! I wish I had... More

Great little visitor center with lots of fosssils and minerals. The tour was fantastic and authentic, given by a former miner. Great little visitor center with lots of fosssils and minerals. The tour was fantastic and authentic, given by a former miner.

It's cool down there! In every sense. Even as a local I do this tour a few times a year with friends who visit because it's that informative and that good. It's a decent value the photo ops in the jackets and hats are priceless and it's fun to take your pals who are afraid of the dark down into... More

My dad walks with a cane, so we thought he could do this riding tour, but they actually get you off at one point to climb 36 stairs, so he had to miss that part. You also walk down side tunnels a couple of times, which he barely managed. Nonetheless, he enjoyed the tour a lot and the other 3... More

I loved this place as a kid and still do. I have been through multiple times and still enjoy it and learn something new. I've never had the same guide and they are always friendly and informative. My nieces and nephew loved it too. It's a highlight for every trip and a must do if visiting. We like to go... More

Well worth the visit, the tour is well managed, tour guides are ex miners and are able to make you imagine what a hard, dirty, dusty job mining was in the early 1900's you get a feel of what it must have been like working down there

We took this tour and an glad that we did. First make sure to make a reservation as quite a few few people were turned away since the for was full. After suiting up in a rain coat, hard hat and light we were ready to go. We rose in on a small train that you had to straddle to... More

Please teach your little ones not to shine us in the eyes! So rude. But that is the worst thing about the tour! The tour miners have VAST knowledge about the tour and mining industry. Impressed! Great gift shop and educational building. My kids ages 10, 12, 16 all enjoyed it immensely. They just wish it had been longer!!! I... More

!600 ft. into the mountain, absolutely cool! They take you on a little rail into the mountain, stopping at stopes (pockets) along the way where they extracted the copper ore from and everyone is equipped with headlamps, so you can examine everything. They demonstrate the different types of drills that were used back in the day. A cheap and fun... More
