Tour guide was passionate and enthusiastic. I believe her name was Maggie. We went here on a whim, and were pleasantly surprised. The tour is engaging and interesting. You get to experience first-hand what it may have been like to be a miner in the 1800-1900s. I don't recommend bringing small children here because the cave could be scary for them. I also recommend bringing warm clothing because it is quite cold in the cave. Overall a fantastic place to visit.
This place was really fun for the child inside of me. I really enjoyed the gold panning and the regular tour into the tunnels (even though we went on a Halloween weekend). our tour guide was very informative and friendly. My older-on-the-inside husband also enjoyed the educational aspect of the displays and tour. It'll be a great place for family outings. Recommend!
Wonderful museum featuring part of BC's industrial history. Excellent facilities with a range of experiences, mostly outside. Do not miss the tour of the mine. Great for all ages, particularly people that don't need to stare at a screen for entertainment. Great all times of year but (does this need to be said?) can be busy during the summer season. Make sure to give yourself enough time to wander the site and see what catches your eye.
Had a great time here with the family. Our tour guide was awesome. Well worth the visit. Its a beautiful drive up there.
This is a very interesting place. You can take a guided tour to learn how the mine operated and the conditions the miners had to work and how they improved the work conditions. They also have a self guided tour you can do.
