The mine was interesting, fun ,and wet. The staff were very informative and our group enjoyed the experience on a cold day. The panning for gold experience was fun and would be a blast with children. Just a nice experience.

This place is kinda hard to find actually. No signage at all. What is here is small but interesting if you have never seen anything like it. Not a bad diversion esp with younger kids

My 13 year old son and I had a great tour and did some panning for gold. The tour was fun - lots of fun facts. Interesting being 2500 ft back into the mine.

We were taken on a tour 1,100 feet into the mine to see how it was done and the conditions the miners worked under. Well worth it.

This as a great tour at a reasonable price. The tour guide shared the history of the mine. We paned for gold, but didn't find any. I highly recommend this tour.
