An excellent tour and it only costs $13 per adult. We almost gave it a miss, feeling a tad "mined" and "caved" out but thanks to the excellent Trip Advisor comments we went. The tour took 80 mins, you travel into the mine on a workers' train and the tour is conducted by 2 ex-miners. Their first hand experiences and... More

I was able to watch the 30 min video in the exhibit area before the tour. It's old, but informative. They suit you up like Bob The Builder and you ride into the mine on the same worker train used until the mine closed in the mid 70's. Our guide used to work in the mine and was an excellent... More

If you go to Bisbee you must see the attractions related to mining, since that's the whole reason the town was built. A hundred years ago, Bisbee was purportedly the third largest city west of the Mississippi, after San Francisco and St Louis, with a population of 25,000. Today Bisbee has no mining, and is given over to the tourists.... More

Going on a train thru narrow dark tunnels dressed like a miner in slicker, helmut & headlamp makes for an interesting way to learn all about mining. Former miner guide showed how blasting with dynamite was done and so many other things. A totally different learning experience compared to going to caves. 47 degrees doesn't sound that cold, but it... More

A must, when you visit Bisbee. We are minimg nubbies and had a 1A great tour for our money today. Went fully professional equipped deep into the mine with that little train. Was great. Keep in mind, it's cold in there, so dress up well. Took great fotos, learned much about mining and working conditions of former times. Much better... More

We took the Queen Mine tour in late December. All tours were Sold Out on that day so we had to make a reservation and come back the next day. Tours are well-run and very educational. Great experience for all ages. Park right downtown and walk to the mine, then return to downtown to shop or go eat. We had... More

Having been on this tour 3 times before, I still wanted to go again and was not disappointed. The retired miner that took us on tour worked in mining 40 years!! Each guide has different experiences and tales. Just like most jobs, this time I learned how the miners would 'initiate' new miners in the workplace. You will have to... More

We took the mine tour this morning and thought it was very interesting. We donned yellow slickers, hard hats, a belt, and a battery operated light, straddled a "train" and went deep into the mine, where we learned a lot about the workings of the mine and about the miners. Our guide was great and talked to us as if... More

My 3yo loved going into the mine on the mine train but I would warn parents of similar youngsters that you need to take into account the location of the talking parts of the tour by the ex-miner presenter. The first stop was in a cave where the single entry/ exit was down 2 flights of stairs. There isn’t anywhere... More
