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

My husband's grandfather was a copper miner so when we planned our trip to the UP this was a must. Wonderfully presented and well done! It is worth every penny to take the entire tour. Going into the mine shaft and understanding how these men worked should not be missed. The staff is wonderful and the displays are well laid... More

My grandfather and his brothers worked in the UP copper mines, so we tour them when we get the chance. Although he didn't work in the Quincy Mine the tour was the best at giving information on what the life was like. The guides for both the below-ground and above-ground were very informative and able to answer all the questions... More

My entire family meets up in the UP every summer, so we have to find things that appeal to all ages (3-65). On a rainy day in July we decided to see if our family could handle a Quincy mine tour that was, thankfully, mostly protected from the rain. Good, good choice! The adults were fascinated with the amazing amount... More

This tour is excellent and well worth the hour it takes to do both the above and below ground tour. The history they explain during the tours both for the conditions the miners worked in and their families above ground was very interesting. I've gone on the tour a couple times and have learned something new each time.

Copper was the life blood of the Upper Peninsula for many many years. It is very interesting to go to the Quincy Mine tour and learn more about it. There are buildings to visit and a cog railway that takes you down to a mine entrance for a tour of the mine. I have returned several times.

This is one of the best tours that I have ever gone on. The tour guide knew a lot about mining and gave us a very meaningful interpretation of the lives of the copper miners and their families. You go down into the mine, and you get a feel for what the miners' experience was like.
