  • I visited here with my family in August. There's a small museum (one room with minerals, photos and old mining gear), a gift shop, panning for gems (four zones in the one trough) and the mine itself. The tour starts with getting a helmet on and a brief talk in the museum. Then, it's of down the mine via a concrete staircase. It's not warm or dry down the mine, so do wear good shoes and something warm. The mine tour isn't long, but informative and both my kids enjoyed it.
  • We found this place accidently and absolutly loved our tour!! It was amazing and will recommend to everyone we know!
  • Excellent experience. A great family runs this place. Really interesting.
