  • Entertaining your even for winter months. My 8 year old liked it so much he wants to go back this summer!
  • Great experience! We got to go on a ghost tour! It was amazing!
  • I was not expecting such an elaborate tour. I loved how the tour guide explained each and everything. If you have kids or even if you don't, this place is very educational. My heart goes out to Al who is the owner of the mine; he lost a son a few months ago and he plans on making it a museum out of this mine named after his beloved son.
  • Al is Avery down to earth guy. I'm going to have to head back and spend the day with him to hear more of his stories! His tour guides did a great job!
  • Ask for tour guide Dave. He's the real deal - a true miner who lives his craft, a wizard at story telling, and even offers ghost tours of the mine. My 3rd visit here (always take out of town guests) and this was the best tour. Tour just the right amount of time and fun, about an hour inside and panning outside (and option to feed chipmunks). Remember that mine temps are in the 50's which even on blazing hot days will feel cold after 10 min so bring long pants and jacket. Posted a few pics.
