Worthwhile

75 minute tour of a small part of the mine. Would have liked to have gone further into the mine. Very factual explanations.

This was an amazing tour into a real mine with a real miner who actually worked in the mine. And he was GREAT! Sorry to miss his name too.... And, this is not just "another" cave or mine tour, it is a worth the trip and to understand how some people made their living not so long ago. We lined... More

We really enjoyed our tour thru the mine and the museum while waiting for our tour. I would recommend that you make a reservation ahead of time this tour is so popular. I also recommend that you wear a light jacket since it is only 47 degrees in the mine. The tour is very informative and the guides were very... More

If you have never been in a cave or a mine then I guess its pretty good. Otherwise skip this one. You ride a little train of cars seven hundred feet into a cold mine and then walk to a few rooms where the guide (we had an 80 year old miner) points out some details. Our guide was the... More

a tram ride through a narrow channel to about 1000 feet into the mountain, just the way the miners did it. You can actually see the green malachite- copper ore on the sides of the mountain. The miner's port-a-potty tram car, drilling machines through time, and a narrative by a former miner. It's about 50 degrees while under ground so... More

Walked up at 11:30 on a Sunday, placed on standby list for 12:00 tour and got on. Interesting to view what miners worked in and different levels of mine and various duties. ADVISE YOU SIT NEAR FRONT OF TRAM SO YOU CAN HEAR COMMENTARY!

This was no Disneyland ride! We geared up with our hard hats, lights and coats and were "guided" by a retired miner. It was the real thing and my husband learned much about underground tunnel mining and came away with much respect for the workers who put in the 12 hr. shifts.

Fun, interesting and maybe a tad scary, riding the cart into the depths of the mine is worth a visit. Sad to lean how dangerous mining was for these guys (and mules) back in the day.

The mine tour was given by someone who actually worked the mine when it was active. They dress you in hard hats and rain jackets. You also have a light that you can use to look at the mine. It did given on a mine train which you straddle and sit on. The guide was so knowledgeable since he had... More
