Very short tour. The naration at each station was a bit lengthy. Thank you for suppling the coats. But, still worth a visit.

If you have an interest in history (especially Colorado history) this is the place for you. In addition to being interesting in that sense, this tour follows development on a broader level (machine development, etc.). Highly recommend.

If you likes mines or history take an hour to take the tour. It is right next to the fire station. There are chipmunks all over that will eat out of your hands.

We took the tour - led by a retired miner. It was informative and interesting. The price seemed a bit steep for the guided tour, but it was worth it.

There are two tours -- one led by a retired miner, and one audio tour with a headset. Due to time constraints, we took the audio tour, but it was very good with a well-spoken narrator. Very interesting! The kids we saw seemed to be...More
