Our first visit to this area, copper mining is a major part of the history here, so we had to come. Go to visitor center first to find out about the grounds and when the next tour is available, sign up and pay here. I don't know how busy they get, but we were here on a Sunday and our... More

We walked the grounds and enjoyed seeing all of the rusted out equipment that helped operate this mine. Did not have time to go down into the mine, but the video in the gift shop gave a nice history of the mine and many details, such as its 9,200 foot depth.

The start of the tour is above ground. The old buildings and ruins of old buildings surrounding the tour area are a photographer's dream. But besides being pretty, the impressive equipment used at the top of the mine and explanation of the equipment and how it was used was very good. You take a trolley-like car down to a lower...

It is an historical marker. It is fascinating the method that they were able to use in the 1800's to extract the copper. Tough conditions for the workers and you can understand the OSHA safety standards and why they are required. Hate to say this but upper MGMT did not seem to care about the worker. Interesting that MI. Tech... More

We had a great time and learned so much. Two hour tour. Even in the heat of summer, it's 42 in the mine. The ground was very wet and our shoes got soaked.

They have a ranger program for kids, mine loved it! It was a good time for the whole family. They talked about it for days. If you don't like heights, you may be a little nervous because its high on a hill. But it is so worth it!

We enjoyed the Quincy Mine tour! It is so informative and gives a realistic overview of how copper was mined in the region. The magnitude of the equipment and the tunnel system is amazing. The inclined train ride on the way to the mine opening is enjoyable. Our guide was very informative. The views are wonderful and inspiring. The tour... More

This was a really interesting tour. You really felt sorry for the people who worked here long ago when you saw some of the conditions they worked in, but you don't have to endure them!

The guides here know their stuff. The tram ride was exciting and the tour was just the right amount of time. Our kids aged 6 and 4 even enjoyed.

This a great place for a fun but very educational afternoon. A trip down into the mine is new experience. There is also a lot to see on the surface. The staff is clearly engaged and interested in the subject matter. A must for anyone visiting the copper country.
