This tour brings you into the dark, cool mine in order to bring to light the working conditions of a century ago. On this tour, you get the chance to experience a miners life through your own senses as well as the excellently interpreted technical information for those who have to know all the details. Five stars, and I will... More

I visited this location with a local who didn't take us there for the typical visit. We didn't go in the mine, but where instead there for the amazing views of the city of Houghton and Hancock that can be seen from this hilltop park. It was breathtaking. Defiantly want to go back for the mine tour.

Wow...take the the tram down the hill and hold on and then dare to go into the constantly 50 degree mine and just try to get your head around life under ground.

Three of us were in the U.P. on motorcycles and the weather was misty with a temptature at about 53 degrees, instead of staying holed up in a motel room we went to Quincy Mine and did the tour. Fantastic! Great tour - and I learned a little bit of what those miners went through years ago. You won't be... More

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
