We took the tour underground with a guy who was very knowledgable and explained how the miners found the silver lodes and how they got it out. Back breaking stuff and they had to work by only candlelight at first, 6 days 10 hour shifts I think he said but a few got VERY rich.

We really enjoyed the tour of the silver mine. We donned our hard hats and went into the mine. Our guide was excellent, and we really learned a LOT. The tour took approximately an hour, but it was cool and pleasant and well worth the reasonable cost of admission. Recommend!

I finally took the your recently of the mine and I loved it! Being a native Arizonan I love learning everything there is to know about Arizona. The mine is full of rich history and I loved every minute of it. Be ready for some walking!
