Visitor Information

The park encompasses portions of four of the original major mining companies and covers more than 100 acres.

This rich history is brought to life through preserved and restored equipment and buildings, historic exhibits, a video presentation (in our on-site theater), a self-guided tour, and a guided Polaris (ATV) tour.

The Visitor Center has a gift shop, displays of historic mining equipment, a mineral display, and a small movie theater. Our black light mineral display has just been greatly expanded and now features short-wave ultraviolet lights which enhance the colors of the display.

Most of the buildings located on the property are open for our visitors to enjoy.  You can experience for yourself how it was to work in a turn-of-the-century mine. The grounds are constantly changing.  New exhibits are added frequently and restoration of existing buildings is ongoing.

View Underground at the Mining Park!

Burro Tunnel



The underground tunnel features a walk down a mine tunnel that intersects one of the original discovery stopes. Named the Burro Tunnel, the “Underground Adventure” is not for the faint of heart!

At the end of the tunnel, visitors are able to step into a steel viewing cage and look down the 500′ foot deep stope.

Our park is family and dog friendly. We kindly ask to keep your dog on a leash and pick up after your furry family member.
