  • I barely remember going as a kid. A few days ago, however, I was very delighted to see all of the improvements. The tour guide takes place in mining rodeos and was a local miner for generations. Basically, he was a wealth of knowledge and made the tour really fun and informative. It's got a bit of an Americana feel to it, with so much local history. The gold panning was authentic-- they got it from the river. What you found, you keep. If you're driving by, you got to stop in here.
  • Really enjoyable tour. Our guide was very smart and knowledge. Lots of interesting things to see and learn about, including going in the tunnel and panning for gold in their sandboxes.
