Description: The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in...
The Goodenough Mine is one of the twenty five producing silver mines in the Tombstone Mining District, which started the mining boom which resulted in the incorporation of the City of Tombstone. When you take the tour, you will be shown through the original 1879 workings by a knowledgeable guide, and learn all about nineteenth century hard rock silver mining. You'll see what the ore looked like, learn about how it was processed, see some beautiful rocks and minerals, and artifacts and structures that have been in place for 130 years. This is one of the mines owned by Ed Schieffelin, the founder of the town, part of the Tombstone Mill and Mining Company, which he founded as well. The Goodenough Mine Tour is the most authentic and unique attraction in the City of Tombstone, and you'll see the results of the hard work of the miners. It's an experience that you will enjoy.

Great informative tour. All of us including the kids enjoyed it. Had stairs about 60 entering and leaving the mine but you could go at your own pace. We did not know it was here, so glad we found it.

I'm so happy we took this tour. It was a great way to see into the past. The tour guide is an experienced miner and was very knowledgeable. It so beautiful in the mine and to see silver in its natural form. I suggest that you wear good walking shoes/sneakers. The tour is about 30 minutes, but we didn't feel... More

While visiting family, we decided to take the kids to Tombstone and looked up the different attractions prior to leaving. The mine tour offered something different from the other regular stuff to do in town. We took the standard tour which lasts just under an hour. They have a more extensive tour that's 3 1/2 hours but most be reserved... More

Very informative and interesting. Only do this if you don't mind climbing stairs and hills. Our tour guide Mongo was a great tour guide. Learned a lot about Tombstone from that one tour. I've been there many times and never took this tour. Glad I did this time.

My kids and I took the tour through the mine. Even my 5 year old had an amazing time. What a great way to spend some family time and have a fun learning experience at the same time. The price for the tour was great and our tour guide was very informative. Highly recommend this place when visiting Tombstone.

Took my entire family on the tour of the Good Enough Mine.. Staff was great and very knowledgeable.. All kids from my 6 year old to my 16 year old loved... More

This was probably our favorite tour in Tombstone. It was really interesting going down into the mine and hearing about the history of it.

Our guide was so great, informative, and easy to hear (being in the back of a larger group of people). My kids aged 14 and 12 were very interested in the mine and seeing all the different type of rock and elements. The tour was the perfect length and we got recommendation for lunch which was also great at a... More
