We went to the mine view after taking the actual mine tour, and despite not being close up, much preferred this. We were able to take pictures, and the ladies staffing the shop on site were superb! They were knowledgeable, friendly, and so helpful. Plus I found some unique souveniers to satisfy my Scandanavian soul. A great place to stop,... More

We hadn't planned on stopping here on our way from Minnesota to Fargo but we saw the signs. It was well worth the stop! It is still a working mine and there is a lot of history here. The have an area in the visitor center with some displays but the walking tour is the best part. You go at... More

As a US history teacher, I had wanted to see the mine. There was little in the museum and the attendants not very helpful. I had called fearing that it might not be open on the cold rainy day we were there. I was assured it was open, only to get there and see the door sign saying closed. I... More

From this place much of the iron ore in the United States was found. Pittsburg is famous for steel making but this happened because it was more expensive to ship coal than iron ore. If it were the other way around Hibbing would be world famous for steel making. I couldn't believe the size of this pit! This whole area... More

Mine View is a great place to see an actual working mine. From this vantage point, some 100 feet above the active mine, you can see actual mining activities. Bring your binoculars, or use those inside the Mine View building to get an up-close look. Then travel out into the exhibit area to see the actual size of the production... More

Most amazing view of an outstanding mine in the history of Minnesota and Hibbing. The mine is actually where the city of Hibbing stood. Hibbing IS the town that moved. Check it out.... so much history there!

Getting to the mine view does not take that much time and is something that is a one time must see when you are in Hibbing. The scale is amazing.

Yet another part of Minnesota that I didn't know anything about, even though I am nearly a lifelong citizen of the state! Neat to see the mine still operating and to get to see up close the machines they use, huge isn't even big enough to describe the trucks!

Even if "mining" is not your thing, going to Hull Rust Mahoning Mine View is certainly worth the 5 minute drive if your already in Hibbing. It is incredible to think how big of a mine pit has been dug. The fence is right on the edge of the cliff so you really get a true sense of exactly how... More
