Tunnels Of Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw

(4.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Explore the underground world of Tunnels Of Moose Jaw, a historic labyrinth of subterranean pathways now open for tours. Constructed in 1908, the tunnels originally acted as an underground steam system, though they soon became abandoned. Escaping persecution during the Yellow Peril, or prosecution during a round of government-led head taxes, many Chinese railway workers and their families would hide in the tunnels, with whole families forming an underground community living in horrendous conditions. During the 1920s, the tunnels were central to local rum-running operations, with Al Capone believed to have visited at some point prior to his 1931 conviction. Two tours, one relating to Chinese immigrants and the other to the prohibition era, operate with convincing sets, artifacts, and staff members in character. Using our world travel planner, Moose Jaw attractions like Tunnels Of Moose Jaw can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Would recommend seeing It is worth going once. It was well portrayed, I do wish they had some of the original tunnels to show. 
  • Will surprise many from big cities that Moose Jaw would have an attraction of this caliber. The Capone one is more fun and the Chinese one more educational. 
  • Did both tours with wife and 2 kids. Interesting and entertaining. Kids had fun. Hosts/guides did a great job. Loosely-based on actual history, so take that for what it is worth.

  • We did the Chicago Connection tour and it was fantastic. The tunnels are a cool interconnected maze and our actors played their parts perfectly. Highly recommended.
  • Had a blast here! So glad we decided to duck in for a tour while passing through town. Definitely recommend this if you're looking for a fun activity!
  • Amazing tours. I've been 3 times. Incredibly detailed set. Hope for a good tour guide becuase it's a hit or miss with the actor's ability to interest you and interact along the way.
  • Lots of fun, tours are engaging, informative, and fun!
  • So awesome. Had such a good time! Definitely will be going back again soon
