We took the kids (14 and 12) on the audio tour of the mine. The kids enjoyed it - can't say they loved it - but they enjoyed it. It lasts ~30 minutes. Their favorite part of course was feeding the chipmunks outside. While I've always been against feeding wild animals - when they sell birdseed for 25 cents for... More

This museum is built into the mountain and is quite spacious. They were having a wood carver's convention inside and we saw many wonderful pieces of art there. There also was a large restaurant and some of the locals were serving food and drinks. There were crafter's there from many states, and we talked with a couple from Missouri who... More

This tour is wonderful - a true understanding of an underground mining experience, and good for all ages. This Museum was built by the local residents who volunteered their time to make this as real as possible for the visitors. Very very interesting. Audio tours explaining most of the aspects of silver mining. The guides are local and very knowledgable... More

This place is Awesome! We loved it! This is a real experience! One gets to experience the underground feel of how a miner really worked! This place is unique! A real gem! This is not a fancy place at all, but the place to visit if you love mining! My boys loved this place! We can't get enough! We love... More

If you are into old mines and history this is the perfect place to start your tour of the area mines. Although this is not a real mine it has one of the best explanations of mining operations I've been to. The "22 Stations" explain most of the terms and equipment used for mining operation visually with life size exhibits.... More

Met Browny and Sam outside the entrance. They assured my claustrophobic wife she could take the tour. It was amazing. You leave with a new understanding and appreciation of mining and the hard work that provides for items we take for granted. Judy took care of our souvenir needs. Don't miss this incredible adventure.

You can tour this disused mine. Very interesting and well laid out. There is a gift shop and clean bathrooms. Good value and should be part of a visit to Creede

Great tour of the inside of a mine given by a retired miner. I learned so much--each of the stops showed the progress in mining technology. Our miner tour guide was a real stitch--almost gave me a heart attack when he simulated a "boom" during a moment of silence in the mines. If possible, let them know you will be... More

Creede is one of the locations used for filming the recent Johnny Depp version of "The Lone Ranger". The sites here are breathtaking, especially the old silver mine and museum. If you're a fan of the old westerns, this is the place for you! You will learn about the work and daily lives of the miners and how towns popped... More
