  • While vacationing in Breckenridge in August, we brought our three young children to pan for gold. Miner Jon was amazing, from greeting us in the driveway and teaching us about the history of mining in an informative and comical way, and also checking on us as we panned in the gold pond. The way he incorporated humor with his education kept our boys’ interests and he fed off of their energy. We are still laughing about his jokes. All of the staff made us feel at home and it was obvious they love what they do. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon! We will be sure to visit next time we are in the area!
  • HIGHLY recommend heading out to explore Country Boy Mine! I’m so happy we booked the mine tour… it was fascinating to go inside and see such a cool piece of history. Our 6 year old loved it! Book in advance and be sure to wear layers - it’s COLD and wet in there. Getting to pan for gold at the end was icing on the cake… hours of fun for us all! Huge thank you to Michael who was an incredibly knowledgeable and fun guide on our mine tour. He went out of his way to make this a great experience. After the tour and panning for gold, our daughter was bummed when she couldn’t find the burros… Without missing a beat Michael took her over to where they were hiding and let her check them out… made her entire day! Thank you so much, Michael, and to all the staff at Country Boy Mine. Everyone was so helpful and kind. Be sure to go visit - this is a very cool experience you don’t want to miss!
  • Our tour guide was very informative. I'd bring tennis shoes or rain boots. The mines are wet didn't realize. Also the temp inside is about 45 degrees. Kids had a blast panning for gold. Very cool seeing the inside of a mine!
  • It’s tough to find an activity for BOTH my 3 year old and 10 year old, but they both loved this experience with the tour and panning. The boys also enjoyed the slide. Our tour guide, Mike, was fantastic and handled questions from kids very well. Highly recommend this stop for families.
  • Justin was our guide and he was AMAZING!!! He made the whole trip smooth and so enjoyable. My 8 year old had the time of his life because of Justin. He gave him a rock to break open which was so exciting for him. My husband is also in a wheelchair and I didn’t think he would be able to do the tour, just hang back and wait for us but Justin made it happen and was there to get him through the mine smoothly and took our time. He made the whole experience just perfect. My husband was so happy he could join the whole tour and panning. Thank you so much for the awesome experience! Definitely coming back. My husband and I could do the panning all day we loved it so much. So relaxing and fun.
