My husband and I did the full tour which included the underground guided tour of the mine and the above ground buildings. This is a great educational and historical attraction. The ride down the cog tram was worth the price of admission! If you have never done a mine tour before, this is a great one to do. I have... More

Touring the mine and seeing the miners' equipment gives a view of just how difficult and dangerous the deep mines were. The workers were brave people. Also very enlightening as to the determination of the operators to overcome the hardships associated with making a successful business out of digging in the ground. The scale of the facility is almost overwhelming-especially... More

At the top of Quincy Hill (in Hancock, MI) is the Quincy Mine & Hoist (Keweenaw National Historical Park). We purchase tickets for the full tour (above and below ground). Our tour begins at the brick 1894 Hoist House. Inside the hoist building is a model of the buildings. It is fun to watch the model train circle the two-sided... More

We were a big group (16) with kids (age 2-18) and older folks. We all loved this place. the short videos, the tram to ride on and the ride into the mine keep you going and interested. Once you're in the mine, you'll be glad to have the mine jacket on! It's cold and dark (when they turn off the... More

Alright, I have an oxygen tank, and I was able to go down into this mine! I did not do the walking parts of the tour but I still got a lot out of it. Nate was also my tour guide for the part I did not walk in but took me else where when he had to turn the... More

This tour reinforced my belief I would NOT want to be a copper miner. The tour was interesting, our guide, Nate, knew his mine history and the cog wheel tram ride was fun. Bring a jacket (or borrow one from the mine) and possibly gloves - the mine is 43 degrees. Not for people who dislike the dark and/or confined... More

I would highly suggest visiting this mine. Lots of information and the guides were able to answer questions. I did have a problem with one of the employees(boss) getting on to our guide for not getting us to the end of the tour on time. It wasn't the guide's fault since he did try to speed things up but a... More

This trip was a last minute decision on our part while vacationing in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We are glad we took the extra hour driving to take in the mine. The tour was quite informative, focused on the history of the Mine and the Mining company. The trip inside the mine itself was fascinating and our group a... More

We really enjoyed the tour of the mine. So much interesting information and neat things to see. Staff seemed to know a lot about the mine and kept our interest the whole tour. Going underground was really neat! It was exciting to see how and where the copper was mined. I highly recommend this tour.
