The mine was great! They offer tour guides or you can walk it by yourself with an audio device. They have about 20 stations that show examples of what being in an actual mine was like. We enjoyed the gift shop too. Outside they offer seed machines to feed the chipmunks!

Glad we went. We did the self guided tour. It took about 30 minutes and was pretty cool. Makes you realize how dangerous and hard mining must have been.

Much of the history of Creede revolves around the early mining industry. If you have taken the self-guided Bachelor Loop tour you need to see now what some of these mines looked like inside (without the danger!). This museum will do that for you. Great for whole families. Can take a guided tour or take the self-guided option with the... More

Your trip to Creede or anywhere near Creede must include this tour. The museum has been well and lovingly prepared by miners to clearly want to show and explain their craft.

This is a good way to learn about mining. You walk through what looks like a real mine and the audio tour tells you all about what you are viewing. The audio portion goes on and off as you move along. It was just about the right amount of time and the right amount of information so you didn't get... More

The "Museum" was actually built into the mountain by volunteer miners. You not only get to see their handywork up close but you get a brief history of mining. The tour is self lead with headphones (or lead by person for additional cost), and is very interesting. There is also an impressive display of rocks and minerals to look at.... More

This is an excellent way to learn more about how mining was done 100 years ago. Very educational, and excellently done. The displays are authentic and historical.

This tour is very interesting. This was never a working mine, but built so people could see what it took to mine, both in the past and in more modern times.

I have taken many friends through this mining museum. It is very, very well done. If you are the least bit interested in how they got the silver out of the mines up in Creede, you need to visit this mine. It is it an inexpensive plethora of information. I highly recommend it!

We enjoyed our tour of the Mining Museum. The tour guide was informative and interesting, with mining stories of his own. It gives you a new level of respect for the life of the miners! The tour is educational and the exhibits are life size.
