This place rocks! If you want education about mining and be treated with respect this is your place. It's a little pricey but worth every penny. The staff is really knowledgeable and friendly.

Came twice to bring grand children. Thy and us found it to be a worthwhile adventure. The panning and gem stone hunting was a little hokey as it is all "seeded" material.
