Very cool

Quite impressive site, if your in the area definitely worth a look. I was there in the winter so everything was covered in snow, still very beautiful.

Just want to add, been around the u.s.a. And Canada and I have nothing to compare the view, you have people still working on this master piece. Every time we come through or make it happen, we stop to take a picture with family. Really good for kids education on geography...

How often do you get to view a giant man- made hole in the ground? Impressive and you can see the active mining process still ongoing. I really enjoyed the abandoned streets of old Hibbing complete with 100 year - old street signs still standing. Gotta love free attractions. Quite often they're the best!

The vastness of this open pit mine is amazing. It is hard to believe how big it is until you see it and the huge trucks that look tiny in perspective. The visitors center is pleasant and provides good views of the pit without the wind and cold on the day we visited. Well worth the short drive to see... More

Visited the Hull Rust Mahoning Mining site as my husband's grandfather had worked the mines in early 1900's. The views were spectacular - much larger than we imagined. The historical building and staff were friendly and very informative about the history of the mines. Definitely worthwhile, regardless of age!

I had heard about this place, so we took the "long way" home to visit. The view is amazing. It was larger than I had imagined and very impressive. Pictures do not do it justice. Fun to be able to climb up on one of the "retired" trucks on display.

This attraction is a must see for anyone visiting the Hibbing, Mn. area. The mine view is easily accessible with a enclosed environmentally controlled viewing platform that doubles as a gift shop. The view is of an open pit iron ore mine which is still in operation after over 50 years of mining. The view is somewhat breathtaking and has... More

The mine view gives you a great view of the mines, there are only a few pieces of equipment on display, and wish there a little more...but the view makes up for it which is the biggest operating open pit iron ore mine in the world, which is also known as the “Grand Canyon of the North”. They do blast... More
