View Underground at the Mining Park!

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′ deep stope.

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, video presentations (in our on-site theater), and a self-guided tour.

The Visitor Center has a bookstore, displays of historic mining equipment 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.

All 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.

Your membership fees and donations go directly toward expanding our collections and improving your experience.

Mountain bike access is now available in the newly-opened trails system.  Our latest addition is a six-passenger ATV. Call us at (775) 482-9274 for more information about this vehicle and its availability for tours.
