  • 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.
  • This is a very interesting tour. Wyatt, Our your guide, was very pleasant and informative. A lot of fun! I deffinantly recommend a trip!
  • Awesome tour. It's just amazing to see how people worked back in the day. ENTIRE staff are super friendly.
  • What a wonderful experience. Our tour guide Walter is a 3rd generation miner and provided deep insights into the science behind mining, which was great for our 9 year old. our 3 year old loved going into a mine and the old mill was a treasure trove of classic American early 20th century technology - plus filled with fantastic museum displays. Highly recommended.
  • Went to look around and see if we could get a tour, but found out we were too late. Tours are not very often, so plan ahead! Cool little shop inside if your looking for rocks and such.
