  • Cool self-guided tour of an old mill used to mine for many decades. Very reasonable price. Lot's of stuff to look at and you get to navigate around the whole facility. The best part is you can push buttons along the tour to see machinery move, which is really fun for the kids and just cool to see this old machinery still operating. Highly recommend.
  • Great history lesson. Very dusty and hard to breath in some parts.
  • Lots to explore, and self-paced
  • Nice tour, nice owner.
  • So what happens after ore leaves a mine? How do they extract gold and silver from ore? The self guided tour at the Mayflower gold mill tells you everything you need to know. It's well worth the $8 admission. The tour starts with an informative video describing the gold rush in silverton and describing the gold and mineral milling process. Then you walk through the mill and see the machines. You can even start some of the machines. Be careful if you have young kids. The tour doesn't look kid-proof.
