  • Get to experience what mining was like. You Must be able to climb steps. Very nice people work there .  more »
  • Self guided tour and pet friendly! Very bizarre in today's world. You get to take as much or little time as you want. The 8 minute video was worth the time to understand how and why these mines worked...  more »
  • We stopped in here at 5 one evening, the man said we had to be out in 30 minutes or he was turning the lights off and lock the door. It was a little unsettling but I decided to go anyways. As soon as ...  more »

  • self guided tour, loved not being rushed through. owners were very informative. it was well worth the stop. suggest a flash light for looking into areas not light by path lights. of course jacket cool but constant temp. loved the gift shop.
  • My daughters and I decided this last summer we wanted to have a unique Michigan UP experience. We decided we wanted to go to Copper Harbor and stay in the northernmost town in Michigan. On the way, we also knew we wanted to go to visit the copper mines in the area. Since we had already been to the Adventure Mining tour in Mass City, we knew we wouldn't pass up the chance to do another tour if we could. Delaware is only half hour away from Copper Harbor, so we knew we had to do the tour. This is a self guided tour, where you watch a safety video, grab your helmet and light, and you're on your way. You take yourself down into a mine and get to explore on your own. There is one shaft going down that T's into a shaft that goes left a short way, then right about a quarter mile if I remember right, and that's it. It isn't a huge mine, but it's a lot of fun because you're on your own. You don't have a guide or anything and you feel like such an explorer. My daughters and I ran into 2 other small groups in passing and that's it. We loved it. The experience isn't nearly as detailed or educational as the Adventure Mines tour, but with this one you really feel like a bit of an explorer. You can climb the rocks if you want and do those things that you can't do in the other cave tours. It really was a rather unique experience. When we were done, we got to walk outside and see some of the old buildings and equipment that was slowly rusting and rotting away. The proprietors are really, really nice too. Since we were able to let them know we knew some of the history of the area and had done some caving, they really opened up to us and talked to us about all kids of things. They could see we were passionate about being there and it excited them too. It may not be the fanciest cave tour you'll ever do, but it's worth the trip and the experience.
  • This was a neat self guided tour. A little creepy as we were the only ones down in the mine when we went through. Lots of info in the mine and the owner was very friendly and fun to talk to. Highlight was petting their pet skunk!
  • Very nice lady running the place. Seemed very informed. Tour is self-paced so you are not rushed through by a guide.
  • Pay your $ and wander the mine at your own pace. We thought it was very cool and educational.
