  • Very interesting place to spend a few hours.....we were there almost 3......excellent staff and facilities 
  • They have actually recovered and reopened an old lead and a zinc mine to explore. Also, their guide Eric is incredibly informed about the history of the area and a great treasure 
  • Artifacts and information is well presented. It is a self-guided tour that comes after the Rollo Jamison Museum tour and thee mine tour. It had a mildew smell, but not overwhelming.

  • Spent the afternoon here. This is a GREAT deal for 10$! You will see more than you ever imagined on this tour and learn so much! There are even some unexpected bonuses such as a train ride on a mining train! The history of our country and world are very important. The staff are very accomodating and knowedgeable. There is things to touch and try also! I feel as if I can get closer to the past here than I ever can at the Milwaukee public museum. Just everything about this place blew my expectations out of the water. I can't believe how under advertised the place is. Thank you for a great trip!
  • Very nice tour. Took a day trip out to see this and was very impressed. The mine has displays showing some of the process that was done. It covers how lead mining and zinc mining was carried out in the past. Low price of ticket made it a super bargain. Also enjoyed the train ride on the mining train in the back yard. Learned a ton from the guide. Only negative is that it is a bit of a climb down and back up again.
  • My kids loved going here on their class trips!
