The grandkids had a great time panning for gems and we're so excited with each find. The gold mine tour was interesting. JD was our tour guide and was funny and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this place.

Thoroughly enjoyed touring this underground coal mine. Our guide was well-versed and detail oriented. I was amazed at the degree of danger routinely faced by those minors back during that era. We highly recommend this an expensive her.

The entire staff is very friendly. We did the tour with 2 younger kids and Nolan the tour guide was an awesome guide. There was also 2 cute little bats down in the mine. Its definitely worth going!

I don't give too many 5 star reviews, but...We stopped here this past week and had a great visit. Of course this is a major tourist trap. They have a short video about the history, allow you to pan for gold depending on what you...More

Upon realizing after buying tickets at the visitors center that probably should take the mine tour, the lady receptionist offered us additional gold and gem panning. The attendants during the panning were quite informative about the process.

Great field trip opportunity. Lots of gold rush information. Opportunity to plan for gold. Tour of an old mine. Patient gold miners working with the kids when they were panning. Loved how they dressed in period clothes. Lots of souvenirs in gift store.

Yes, 2 hours should be fine. You go in and purchase your tickets. The tours leave about every 20 minutes and you can do a little gold panning until they call your tour. Seems like it was only a bout 10-15 minutes. Tour... More
