Venture over 1,000 feet into a Mountain. Explore the original working of the Country Boy Mine as you feel, hear and smell what it was like to be a Colorado Miner over 100 years ago.

This is truly an amazing experience and fun for the whole family year round. Come and tour the only underground gold mine in Breckenridge.

Highly recommended! I came from Australia and it was amazing to hear about all the history in these mountains. Our guide was unbelievably knowledgeable and from the moment we walked up we left incredibly welcome. When you're leaving.... take the slide to your car!!

If you are visiting Colorado then you should learn the historic Colorado (yes people flocked there before winter sports became popular). Mining built Colorado...so no family vacation would be complete without a gold mine tour. The CountryBoy Mine in Breckenridge is an extremely informative and...More

We opted for the panning without the mine tour because of the price. The staff was very nice and helped us out multiple times as we learned to pan gold. We never found any, and I really doubt anyone does, but the kids can say...More

The Country Boy Mine is a neat place- the donkey, old mine, and mining equipment are cool to see. We did not do the mine tour, so I cannot speak to that. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. However, I paid $17 per child...More

The best past are the guides. It worth a visit but its very expensive for what you get. Don't get lured just because you can pan for gold - and you can, and you may find some - the tiniest flakes if you're lucky! Glad...More

Way overpriced for a very short walk down an abandoned mine. Not that much fun. Kids enjoyed panning for gold for a little while. Not worth it.

A fun spot to visit. The mine was interesting, but the stories and history told by the tour guide were even better. The family had a great time on the tour and panning for a bit afterward.

The mine was interesting, fun ,and wet. The staff were very informative and our group enjoyed the experience on a cold day. The panning for gold experience was fun and would be a blast with children. Just a nice experience.
