I have always wanted to explore a mine and this tour gave me the opportunity to do just that, and safely. I was blown away by the amount of work that these miners had to do to rob the earth of her precious ore. Our tour guide worked in the mine before it closed, as did his father before him.... More

The Mine is what it is, so the tours can only address what is there, and we were impressed with the candor, experience, and treatment of our guides. First, it was an odd day due to some work being done in the mine, and they could have cancelled our tour, but they didn't. Then because of the work, they limited... More

Amazing to see and feel the life of a real miner. The tour gives you a look into that life and the challenges they faced on a daily basis. It's cold but not freezing in the mine, bring a coat and wear pants. Fun for teens too.

... And so did the adults (including me with major claustrophobia issues... Amazing what a grandma will do with the kids! 😄 Actually much less creepy than I expected. ). Definitely captured and held the interest of 4 small kids under the age of 10. Fun for them to get raincoats and hard hats, and each one got their own... More

We passed up the "Shoot Out" at Tombstone to spend time at the Queen Mine and I'm glad we did. The tour guide, who is a retired miner, gave a very complete description of life as a miner. A few tips: When selecting a seat on the train car, pick one that allows you to extend your legs. Typically these... More

I was able to attend the tour as a last-minute sign-on for a tour, otherwise, reservations are highly recommended. Attendees donned a hardhat, slicker and a belt with a light/battery pack. Attendees had to straddle a seat on a train car that takes goes thru the mine. We stopped at two different sites with explanations of the operations, and equipment.... More

The tour was around 1 & 1/2 hours. ... it was really great experience. ... See the website for the time schedule and price. ... Ours was 3:30pm but you need to be there at 3pm. ... It's very informative. ... We got to learn the different kinds of miners, a bit history, machinery and stories. ... our tour guide... More

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
