    Tonopah was the Centre of silver mining in the United States and now even gold to dismantle. Information obtained in the loving Museum of historic mining Park. The keeper there is staunch local Patriot and it is a pleasure with him marvel at the exhibits. He has a story on stock almost to all. Who has more time can walk through the huge former mine site and look at another. It's nice to take a break in transit. Parking is on site and we would run better there than from the Centre to the Park!

    Site was good, getting to it was difficult. There is NOT room for a big RV rig... also, the power lines are very low - barely cleared the top of our rig.

    Awesome , a must do - the Polaris riding tour, with guide Sarah. She was brilliant, fun and interesting.

    We didn't take the tour but looked around the shop. Bought an amethyst and a wire necklace to hold hit. I put it on my rear view mirror. We bought one for my mother-in-law as well. We love them! Very nice and knowledgeable lady was working, didn't get her name.

    I like the historic sites, so an old mining location like this was pretty interesting to visit. Mike inside was very freindly, and sat you down for a very interesting 20 min video. Nice gift shop. You can walk nearby around the visitors center, or take a decent hike along the trails (I am out of shape, so a good workout). I went on a mild, sunny day, great veiws.

    Wonderfully preserved historic mining exhibits with excellent explanations via signage and friendly staff. Well worth the time and small fee to learn about this 100 year old silver mine.
