    Very fun tour to check out the old mining operation. Check out all the glowing rocks they have there. They don't call it the Mineral capital of the world for nothing. Just remember to count when the tour guide tells you to count! It's the only way to get out of the mine!!

    This was a good tour. The place is.very interesting as an old zinc mine. The pathways are good and level and the place is good. Ample parking. Although we went after a few days of constant rain and there was rain coming down through seams. They have some interesting fluorescent displays and a history of the mine. If you look at the lockers they have names and some dates for some of the old miners. They have a small snack bar as well. The kids had fun so it was good in my book. Also seeing the flooded mine shafts and the water table made it pretty cool.

    Pleasant my surprised at how fun and interesting this is. Great to see inside mine and realize that we only saw another 2 percent of the whole thing. The glowing rocks were brilliant

    This is a really fun place with an old mine to visit on guided tour, plus Minerals Museum and "glowing in the dark minerals" (short wave ultraviolet light) mini-museum as part of the guided tour. For additional fee you can pick your own minerals/fossils to take home. The guided tour is only once a day at 1:00 pm sharp (at least it was), so check their website for more info.
