  • We stopped here because we wanted a place to stretch our legs for a while during our long drive. It was raining off and on that day so didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked outside b...  more »
  • There is so much to see you should plan on spending at least an hour looking around and the mine tour is another 3 hours. So wonderful to visit such an historic place and the collection of "old time" ...  more »
  • Spent an entire day here with a short break for lunch (staff recommended Metals Bar and Grill which was perfect). Our guide for the underground tour was well-informed, courteous and a good raconteur. ...  more »

  • Great way to learn about mining and history of Butte, Mo. Our tour guide was an actual miner from the area in the '60s. There is a player piano, mineral exhibit, and little town to view in addition to the tour. I highly recommend the tour ($37 for 2 adults). Easy access to the mine through a sloped portal that was cut into the mine for tourists. You don't go very deep (~65ft) but you still get a feel for what the miners lived with. We were told the tour would last about 2 hours but our lasted closer to 3. Tour depends on # of questions asked I'm sure.
  • I loved this place when I visited. It's existence is an act of love for the past. I wish more people would be more generous with their donations, so they can get down to finishing all the restorations and developments they have planned.
  • Our tour guide, Jim, was kind enough to take us on our tour early since the 12:30 tour didn't have any reservations, and we got a private tour. He was a great conversationalist who did a wonderful job of explaining everything, while throwing in entertaining stories and tid bits along the way. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The "town" displays were really neat, and since we came early in the season we practically had the place to ourselves. Really cool place!
  • The tour guide talks too long about himself. People came to see history and the underground mine. Less talking, more tour please.
  • A great educational museum. It gives a great insight into the miners lives and how copper mines work. A must with school age children.
