  • Beautiful and very historic. I went on this trip to get myself out of the house and get to know some more knowledge. This was definitely what I was looking for. I got to pan for minerals, learn a lot about history, got excercises as I walked and the tour guide was very polite and informative. He seemed to thoroughly enjoy his job from the second I got there until I exited the building I had a great time. This event is good for children and family travel or just a day out to not have any stress and have a little smile.

  • This is a great mining museum. I'd never heard of it before, but I went there for a club meeting that was held there. After the meeting we toured the museum and it was great. It's right off of the I-25 and well worth the visit.

  • This is a great museum! Very informative and interactive. The tour was wonderful and kept my kids' attention. My 6 year-old had a great time, especially panning for old. My 3 year-old liked watching all the old "chines" [machines] run. Thank you!!!

  • We came here for Halloween time when they had the pumpkin patch and all the fun stuff for kids to do. They played a giant game of battleship, crawled through tubes, played tetherball, and several other things. Then they picked out some giant pumpkins that we're impressive in size, quality, and quantity. Later we went on the tour and both my 9yos were engaged and interested the entire time. The fact that they have so many functional antiques is worth the trip to see alone. But you can pan for stones and gold in the water troughs and roam the property too.

  • My 7 year old brother LOVES this place. I would say not somewhere you'd want to visit more than like twice a year ( just because its so small). But the staff was amazing and it was 2 hours of great, cheap fun.
