  • If you are in the UP you have to stop at the mine. The staff is wonderful, knowable and have stories of the mine from over 100 years ago. It is amazing you can go into the mine that has not operated s...  more »

  • Took this tour during the summer. Twice. One for the miner then the captains tour a few weeks later I was the first and only one noted that I know of that didn't want to wear a jacket as 45 degrees isn't cold enough for me to want one. Still had an awesome experience.
  • We had no idea what we were in for. We read reviews and all were good. Having lived in the U.P. for 6 years (and 3 of them spent in the Copper Country) I had never done a mine tour. WOW...JUST WOW. We got to Adventures Mining around 9:45AM, and Jim was in the main office/gift shop with another employee. We had our 10 year old son with us (who was the reason we were there in the first place). We opted for the 90 minute tour. After a couple minutes of hemming and hawing over who was going to give the tour (who had what to do as they aren't just tour guides, they do many other things around the facility) we were off with Jim to the basement to get hard hats (REQUIRED) and some introduction to what we were going to see. WOW...JUST WOW. Jim was AWESOME. My son had some off the wall questions and Jim fielded every one of them. We actually ended up spending over TWO HOURS on that tour. We didn't get out of the mine until noon!!! This is NOT your typical "oh look this is this, this is that". No, this is going into a rustic mine walking over some difficult terrain at times. Seeing how things were done back then. I HIGHLY recommend this tour for anybody that is interested in mining history at all. They did a GREAT job and we'll go back when my son is a bit older to do the rappelling tour where you get to go down to Level 2 and see even more great stuff!
  • The mine was not disappointing. We had took the miner tour and our kids loved it. Our tour guide, Josie, was fun, informative and friendly. I was nervous about rappeling but Josie explained and demonstrated, and I did it!! It was very much worth the money! Thank you Josie and Adventure Mine!
  • Incredible experience. Went on the Captain's Tour and what a tour that was! We started out learning a bit about the history of the mine then went into the mine. The mine itself was really neat to walk through. Our tour guide (I believe his name was Brendon) was very knowledgeable about the mine itself and all of the different types of minerals we found. He definitely loved what he was doing and it made the whole tour that much better. Rappelling down to the second level was a trip on its own. The first level was one thing, but going down to the second level was really a treat. Our guide encouraged us to look around, inspect the rocks, and ask any questions we could think of. Every time I had a question or a thought, he offered an answer and his thoughts. Very highly recommend to anyone visiting the UP. If you might be hesitant about doing the captain's tour because of the price trust me, it is ABSOLUTELY worth it. Fun note: a movie called Dwarves of Demrel was filmed in that mine
  • Excellent place to visit. Staff was very fun and informative. We will be back when the kids are old enough to do a more advanced tour. Thanks to the staff you are great.
