We had a wonderful tour of the outside and inside of the mine. You are only on one level but it really shows part of the conditions of how these poor people worked. I liked the ride down to the opening of the mine. Beautiful scenery from up high.

As a partner of the Keweenaw National Historical Park it is a site worth visiting. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Riding the tram was fun and I'd suggest trying to get a front seat so you can take a cool picture as it travels down the hill! Inside the mine was interesting and the tour guide did a great job...

The tour guides are excellent!. When this mine was operational the depth of the mine was 9200 feet plus. During the tour you will be about 450 feet underground. You will leave the mine with an appreciation for the work and the lives of the miners in Quincy mine. My wife and I sure did.

It's amazing this is still around to be seen given how many of the buildings from the copper mining area can be seen crumbing in place. From the operation center where the lowering and raising of cars carrying people and copper were handled, to the cog train ride down the mountain and ride into the mine, this is a something... More

We were very happy with this mine tour. We had never toured a mine before and were very satisfied with this tour. Be sure to be dressed warmly though because it's cold in the mine. We were given hard hats, jackets and taken on a tram then tractor ride into level 7 of the mine. It was very interesting to... More

We went for the mine tour. It was okay, nothing too interesting. We sat on wagon pulled by a tractor to go into the mine. The guide spent a good 15min explaining what we might see before we enter coz it would be too loud to hear him once the tractor starts moving. Well, I kind of forgot most of... More

Mining was a tough job. This give you a glimpse of what it was like to work deep in the mines. The tour guide provides excellent insight and information about what life was like as a miner, the difficulties they faced and what it was like dealing with advances in technologies and economic realities. This mine went down almost 2... More

This was our second mine tour, the first being in California, so we had somewhat of an idea of what to expect. We were simply amazed by the knowledge shared by the guide! The tour lasted about 2 hours and was well worth the money! The guide into the mine itself answered all of our questions w/o hesitation. The man... More
