This is a national historic site. Several tour options. We chose the full tour. It's gave us an appreciation to what miners endured. The tour guides answered questions but for the most part appeared very bored with their jobs. I didn't mind paying for the tour as I am glad to support the national historic parks. If you don't want... More

Interesting tour. The guide was VERY knowledgeable about the mine's history, and working conditions over the history of the copper mines. It was well worth the drive.

We took the full tour including both the overground and underground tour. This is a perfect example of an exhibit badly designed, with no educational purpose in mind. Maybe we should have learned beforehand how a copper mine works, because nobody actually told us and there was no additional information or display. Sure, we were told how the miners went... More

We went to the afternoon tour of the mine and properties. The tram down to the mine entrance is a neat feature. Our tour guide was VERY knowledgeable about the mine's history, and working conditions over the history of the copper mines. When the mine tour was complete, we went to the steam lift, and the tour guide there was... More

wanting a little learning with my summer vacation I chose the Quincy Mine to learn more about the region and got so much more than I expected. A very knowledgable team of docents led us through a series of buildings, equipment, and then into the mine. I am sure the kids enjoyed the dark, and the bats, and all, but... More

I loved this tour. Our tour guide had lovely blue eyes and was extremely knowledgable and great at relaying the stories of these miners from so long ago. The underground portion was equally interesting. Pair this tour with a walking tour of Calumet and a pasty :). Walking tours begin at 1:30 at the Calumet Visitor Center and are free... More

A friend of mine, who was raised in Houghton, recommended I take my family to visit the Quincy Mine on a recent family vacation. None of us - from my two sons (10, 6) to my mother - were disappointed, and each of us was fascinated by the experience of going underground to view a former copper mine. The pace... More
