When we went we were on our way to Deadwood to see their shoot out. We saw the mine and we all said that a mine tour would be fun so we decided to try it. It was really fun. My favorite part was panning for gold and when they did they made a movie there. I found six flakes... More

Our nice tour guide provided plenty of history and a nice walk through the mine. I recommend panning for gold after. The kids LOVED it and it's a great souvenir. FYI - don't expect a lot of gold - just a few flakes, but you pan it yourself!

This was our second time in a row and would go back again. Staff is friendly and helpful. We did the tour and the panning it was worth it.

On our way out of Deadwood, we saw this attraction and thought why not, let's see it. Our entire family was there. we're in our 30s, kids 14 and 8, and my parents in mid-60s, so we had all age groups in our group. It was interesting to see the mine and the conditions and what they went through. It... More

I have lived here 10 years and finally went to the mine with my sister-in-law. I was not disappointed. The tour guide was very patient, answered questions and was knowledgeable.

Small mine with friendly staff. We enjoyed the tour but would skip the gold panning as it was a bit of a joke.

This is educational and interesting for the whole family. The tour of the mine was fun and the guide had great information. The price is good and for a little extra you can pan for some gold which was a great addition after the tour. Every person who tours also get a certificate that says they own a little piece... More

Fun tour of an old gold mine. Tour is about a half hour or less, not very expensive. Our tour guide was knowledgable about the mines history as well as full of geologic trivia about the area.

With the profusion of gold mine attractions in the Black Hills, we were at a loss to choose one to visit. We talked with a young man at the Deadwood information/interpretive center about the various options. The thing that made us choose this particular mine was that it came across much less as a tourist trap and more of an... More

Got there late at the Broken Boot to play some slots. Many interesting stories and things to look at here involving Black Hills Gold. Good place to stay awhile, play some slots and wander throught the big place looking at Deadwood history. Again we won a bit, but not a lot. The bank is not broke!
