We visited the Mine in August whilst staying in Deadwood. We walked from town which took us 20 minutes. It was an interesting tour if you have an hour to kill.

In a touristy town, this is a tourist stop for sure. But it's a fairly good one. I agree with other reviewers that it's a little bit pricey (we didn't do the gold panning though). However, we had one member of our family that really...More

Nice but pricey for what you see mine tour. expect to take abut 30-45 minutes with a steep set of stairs to start your tour that levels off and Is enjoyable. a good "hot" day tour as the mine stays about 55 degrees year round....More

We enjoyed our tour of the Broken Boot Gold Mine on our way to Deadwood, and the staff were very friendly and hospitable, giving us information the area. My kids, age 8, enjoyed panning for gold.

Great tour of a real mine, just the right length for kids. You get to walk through a real mine and hear about the miners only using candles to light their way and ate lunch in the dark.

This is a fun little tour of a old gold mine. You get to walk though the mine seeing how they use to mine by candle light or old lanterns using a chisel and hammer.

The whole cost for the tour and gold panning should be less then $15 per person depending upon the age. It is a really I expensive side trip.

Wheelchairs have gone through the mine. The first door is too small to accommodate but you can carry the chair up the stairs and fold it through the doorway and it will fit through the mine.
