When we saw six school busses in the parking lot we were ready to turn around and leave, but we learned that this attraction has special tours for school children that are separate from the general public tours. Our tour guide, Amy, was remarkably informative...More
I went here with 4 children ranging in age from 8-20. It was a long ride for us (2 hours each way) but I would totally do it again. You get to see and do a lot for your money. We got there about 30...More
We took a 1pm tour with our guide Kassandra (I think) and she was sooo knowledgable. The tour is very interesting and thorough. We loved seeing the florescent rocks and learning about the mining trade. Definitely worth the $11!!

Learned a lot about the history of mining in the USA. THE fluorescent minerals are fascinating. I highly...More

A good portion of the tour of the mine itself is. However there are several sections of the tour where there are stairs. I believe they have an alternate entrance to those sections. If you give them a call I am sure one of their great staff members could let you know for sure.
