  • Super family friendly! About an hour easy walk into the mine and at the end of the walk you get to chip a piece off the wall. We had 5 years to 65 years and all had a great time. Would definitely recommend the extra $5 a person to pan for gold at the end. All of us found some great little bits and had fun.
  • Dave was our guide and he was great. We learned about history of living there and of how they mined. We got to use a hammer and chisel to chip our own ore from the vein to keep - I don't know where else you can do that. While we were panning for gold, I was talking with Dave about what he did for mine rescues. Dave was great with the little kids in the other group that went with us and had an extra hunt for them to do with the tommyknockers. While you get to go pretty far into the mine, there are 2 other levels that I hope someday they will open to see even more.
  • Very in depth and entertaining the only mine in the USA that will let you mine your own samples. Fantastic staff!
  • The experience which made our trip shine. An amazing interactive tour for the whole family.
  • Very kid friendly place and people. An hour tour tgat includes looking for gold. Great learning experience not far from Denver
