Great tour

It was a great tour. Loved the cog railroad trip down to the mine entrance and then the ride into a copper mine shaft. Exceptional!

The grounds of the Quincy Mine are very cool. There are three steam locomotives located on the site. The cog railroad is also very cool to ride, and is the only one in the region. Defiantly worth a stop if you're in the area.

This mine was the biggest copper mine in the US! They tell the story of importance copper in growing our country in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Interesting tour and not a lot of walking.

If you have an interest in mining, this is a great stop....especially on a rainy day. MAKE SURE TO GET THE UNDERGROUND PACKAGE!!! It's the best part and really the only reason to visit. Also, dress warm!!! The mine temp was 43 degrees in mid July and you will be there for an hour.

We did the full tour with the cog train. The cog train ride to the mine gave great views of town and the children loved it. The mine part was short but informative ( guessing 30-45 min max under ground). There is some buildings of stuff that is free to explore on site.

Driving up to Hancock Michigan on the far I could see something high above on the ridge line. My curiosity got to me, and when I got there a hugh old mine shaft was present. I parked and was able to walk most of the grounds. There is a very nice gift shop too. There is a tour that is... More

This is a great visit. As a history buff I never knew anything about UP copper. The mine tour gives you a glimpse of the life and hardship of these miners. Just an excellent thing to visit.

The tour was great and I was amazed as to how cold it was in the mine. If gives you a very good insight as to how hard of a living it was in the mining days there.

Since copper mining is such a historic backdrop to the Copper Peninsula's settlement we wanted to tour a copper mine. We are very glad we toured the no-longer-working Quincy Mine as the two part tour (above ground and then below in the mine) gave us a good overall understanding of copper mining in the area. The tour price may seem... More

We enjoyed the morning doing the self-walking tour, watching the video, and then going to the Hoist House and ride down into the mine. Informative!! So glad we didn't miss this.
