Last century, it was a working mine. Now, it’s a multi award-winning Museum, turning out awe-inspiring sights and memorable family experiences. So much to see and do. Rumble aboard our mine train as it rolls into the dark. Learn from informative but informal tour guides. Pan for real gold! Come for a visit and see why this National Historic Site is rated 4 1/2 stars on Trip Advisor.
