On our way out of town we saw the sign for Broken Boot mine. We pulled in and are very happy we did. The inactive mine is a reasonable and compact introduction to the work the real goldminers did. The pleasant staff especially the knowledgeable...More

A quick brief tour and history of the Gold Mine. Very informative guide. Our group was maybe a little too big as there were a lot of small children that had no interest.

Jackin was our guide and he was knowledgeable and funny. The cost was $5 for seniors and we spent and enjoyable hour walking thru the mine. It's a short and easy walk.

It was so interesting to see a real gold mine and do some gold panning ourselves! We had a great time, our guide was excellent, and so informative. Parents must bring their children for a gold mine adventure!

This is a great experience for all ages. They give you a bag of rocks (with gold in it) and show you how to pan just like the old times gold miners did. You don't have to go into a river or creek, there is...More

The whole cost for the tour and gold panning should be less then $15 per person depending upon the age. It is a really I expensive side trip.
