Doesn't look like much from the exterior but don't let that discourage you. Lots of fun for the entire family and really interesting too...
We had a 9 year old and a 16 year old on this tour and they enjoyed it just as much as the adults! Highly recommend this trip and spending an hour or so in the self guided museum and gold panning area.

For people with curious minds, this tour is for you. Good information on how the mining industry had evolved from it's early years to present. Great for kids. The fun part was panning for gold at the end of the tour.
