  • Awesome experience!! Couldn't be more pleased. Tour guide Nick did a great job of elaborating on the different parts of the mine while keeping the group engaged. Definitley will be back!! Luckily we knew ahead of time, but they do not accept cards so make sure to bring cash or check!
  • I go to and sell at the flea tique flea market here. nice people run it and nice people run the museum too
  • You won't find an experience like this very often. No joke, you get to see a REAL mine with real working equipment from 100 years ago to today. Very reasonable admission price as well.
  • Really great. Excellent tour guide. Well maintained. Drawback is that it is cash only, so be prepared.
  • I've brought school groups and I've brought my own family. One of the most fun museum experiences ever for all ages. Going into an actual mine is super neat, educational, and very well done. Can't wait to go again.
