The place is very charming and you can take great photos. The mine is just a cave you go down 60+ steps. Then you have a small explanation of how things work. You'll be out in less than an hour.

Tour was really short, had to pay extra to use restroom and the guide asked for tips after. Not much info at all, the 'mine' is a few stairs down and not much more. The hacienda is pretty, and the bar looks really cool but you can't have a beer or anything. Just a photo op. I wouldn't recommend it, honestly. I love mines and caves and rocks and this tour was the worst one I've been on. If you do want to go, I was concerned about feeling claustrophobic in the hot humid climate going down the mine and it was fine. Climb up was mild as well.

We all know Guanajuato for its rocky streets, its participation in Mexico's Independence, Don Quijote and the Cervantino; yet what many might not know is that Guanajuato is/was also famous for its mines.
This small museum/mine proved a brief introduction into the mining industry that still operates in Guanajuato (thought, it is not as big as it used to be). You can able walk into the inside of a mine and get to feel the changes of temperature and how claustrophobic miners might get.
I do recommend it, if only just to get to know about this other side of Guanajuato that is sometimes ignored.

We visited a couple mines near GTO and this was a fun trip but it felt more like a disneyland version of a mine visit compared to the El Nopal Mine. You descend quite a few stairs into the mine, take a brief tour with a guide and you're done. I think the hacienda itself was more interesting then the mine.

Got here due to a taxi driver recommendation. turns out that he was getting kickbacks for dropping us off there.
Price is average: $ 35 pesos (2usd), extra for using the restroom. Has 2 small rooms with some stones got from this and nearby mines. Then you walk 62 steps downstairs to reach a small cave with an hydraulic hammer stuck on one of the walls so you can take a cheese picture and thats it.
Save your money and more importantly save your time! Avoid this mine at all cost, and go some where else!
