Watch a video, don a hard hat, and away you go. Down the 100 steps into the ground. Fun self guided tour of the mine. Surprising how far you can go underground. Nice to be able to do it at your own pace.

Definitely a must see to go down into the mine. Amazing the conditions that people used to work in. Recommend taking flashlights as they are not provided with the tour. Lots of bats to see also. Make sure you take your coat

Wasn't the most exciting thing we did in copper harbor bit was worth the adventure. Self guided tour. Rough terrain and steps. Still fun to explore

Okaaayyy.....so if you've never been in a mine you'll think it's pretty cool. You do get to see some slopes and adits and a car and tools, etc. However!! You may not know enough to think much about the safety issues. Last summer (2015) my...More

I am sorry that the experience wasn't more positive, but we went from guided to self-guided tours when the economy tanked, and that is how we were able to survive. When doing this, we found that the majority of our customers actually liked the self-guided...More

This was our first visit to this mine (and our first tour of a copper mine). We watched a brief introductory video, then walked into the mine and around the surface structures. It was a self-guided tour, with little information about the history of the...More

Enjoyed the experience of going down into the mine. Don't go if you are claustrophobic and the steps are a bit steep, but otherwise it was interesting.

This is a self guided tour. You do need to watch the informational/safety video first. Make sure to dress warm, wear closed shoes. Very nice gift shop to visit after. Great fun for kids, but, there are about 100 steps down to the level you...More

This was a great 1 hour stop for us on our vacation. We were able to learn a lot more about the copper industry and how the copper was mined. Make sure you talk to the owner, and that he introduces you to his pets....More
