  • One of the best museums we have been too! An amazing collection of mining machinary that would be great enough to look at - but also runs! Also running models. Great educational information and replica mine to walk through. The staff is phenomenal - knowledgeable and attentative to special needs.
  • Awesome place and some much to learn. The old machinery is powerful when demonstrated Pan for gold is fun and they have wonderful donkey friends as well.
  • It was really fun. I remeber digging for gold there in 1st grade. I also learned about how musical instruments were made of metal that could only be found underground.
  • Great place! Loved our tour. I think you can do a self guided tour but they do have guided tours and ours was excellent. Great place to take your family. Neat stuff!
  • A great place to bring children, so they learn how the minerals that make up the metals in there toys, car, phone, and much more in there lives are found, mined, processed, ... And the history of the miners, towns, why they were abandoned and started again
