This tour is somewhat interesting - we were expecting a lot more history and it was really about what is currently happening in the mine. We did really enjoy walking in an actual mine - quite interesting. We felt it was quite pricey ($40 per person) for a 1.5 hour tour.

A safe family adventure to explore a silver mine. Guides will not only show you the mine workings, but you will learn of the local history, and how the minerals were processed. Ask them to point out the cabin up on Aspen Mountain which is an access point into these mine workings.

This is an absolutely fantastic experience but I would not recommend it for young kids as the tour is a little long. Our guide is a veteran from working the mine in recent years and brought great history to life, but the storytelling got a little long at a few points and could be crisper in terms of getting in and through the mine more efficiently. It’s a very hands-on experience and you go into a couple of layers of the mine and learn a tremendous amount about what it was like in the region back in the 1800s. The whole experience taught me a lot that I never knew about the industry and the region. A must do!
