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

The Queen Mine Tour was a great experience and quite informative. Our tour guide was very knowledgable after working in the mine himself for many years. One could only imagine what it was like going into the mine with only candles or lanterns back in the day. A great lesson on the AZ copper industry.

We loved the Queen Mine tour. You get plenty of time in the museum to see the models and artifacts, but the trip into the mountain was the highlight. Be sure to wear sleeves and long pants due to the 47 degree temp inside the mine. Well worth the $13 fee.

My husband and I recently did the Queen Mine tour, and we both agree this was a fantastic experience, well worth the time and money! What a great experience to take the train 1500 feet into the mountain. Sure it's dark, but not overwhelmingly so. And each person is wearing a bright miner's lamp that you can aim wherever you...

My spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed the Queen Mine Tour. Our tour guide was a gentleman that had worked in the mine for 21 years (until it closed), then went to work for the state of Arizona, retired, and now does tours. The tour could not have been any better than the way he presented it. Bisbee is jewel of... More
