We rented a car in Las Vegas and drove the 40 miles to Nelson taking the tour of the mine and it was well worth the $15 per person for the approximately 1hr:15min tour. The guide was knowledgeable about the history of the area and the mining techniques that were used to extract gold and silver, the old west characters and villains who lived in the area. At one time, Nelson had more residents than Las Vegas and it was interesting to learn of the fact that all supplies had to be brought in by the Colorado river.

My husband and I took our 7 year old on this tour. I was shocked at how inexpensive the tour was. I didn’t ask a price when I called to make our reservation (which you must do to get in on a tour), and I would have gladly paid double what they charged us ($40 for the 3 of us). We learned a lot about the mine and the history of the area. When I asked my son what his favorite part of the tour was he said “all the knowledge they gave us” which I thought was true as well. I think it says a lot about their business that a 7 year old was entertained without “typical” child entertainment.

Make sure to wear shoes for walking on uneven surface if you plan on going on the mine tour. Bruce our tour guide was amazing.
