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

It's about a 45 minute tour with miners who share their experiences and knowledge of what it was like working in the mines before they closed. It was a great experience and I have a greater appreciation for hard labor...I certainly can't imagine doing what they did for years. Our tour guide was a retired miner and he was very... More

I've seen the videos and plenty of photos of the Queen Mine Tour. But nothing can prepare you for the adventure of going a quarter of a mile under a mountain or dropping down 300 feet in elevation surrounded by rock and Douglas fir. It all seems so innocent and carefree at first, until you gear up, are issued a... More

Now, call me crazy, but I believe you can take advantage of this interesting and very informative tour of this mine led by an actual miner who has lived and worked it. He's an awesome tour guide and I believe once he's gone, the tour may lose that important aspect. The staff, guides, and gift shop manager were very courteous.... More

We took our 3 children, ages 2, 5 and 13 on the tour and all had a great time. It's around 47 degrees inside the mine so we took sweatshirts, but were otherwise in shorts and flip flops and we were all comfortable. The "train" pulls inside of the mine and stops to give information, which gives anyone that might... More

A great experience for all ages. The tour guide explained all aspects of hoe the mine operated and while walking at the 1,500 foot level showed how the machinery still down there was used. A great tour for anyone who is not claustrophobic.

Gang, This is a real mine tour! I am not certain there is much more that could be done to make the visitor feel the "authenticity" of this tour. Starting with the excellent mineral displays followed by the fun of gearing up and on to the train! Keep your hands at your side! NOT KIDDING!! While in the mine, excellent... More
