The guides had quick and interesting answers for all of our questions. During the above ground tour there was plenty of time to learn about the steam hoist and take pictures. I enjoyed the small scale models which helped me understand how miners were transported...More

This tour takes you down to the entrance on a cog wheel tram. You then take a ride into the mine to explore. There are informative displays set up throughout. You do get to walk around in the mine a bit, but not as much...More

This was our first stop as we explored the Keweenaw and really helped get an idea of what went on during that time. There is a tram ride down to the mine, another ride into the mine and some mine exploration. The tour continued with...More

All ages will enjoy this trip to the Quincy Mine, although those who struggle with walking should stick to the top side of the tour. After receiving your ticket at the main visitor center and gift shop, head on over to the Hoist House (down...More

This was a great mine to tour. The surface tour and underground tour were really cool. Also temperature. The inside of the mine is around 40 F (4.5 C). Would suggest not wearing shorts as you are in the mine for about 1 hour. This...More

Don't even think twice about it, this is a must-see in Houghton/Hancock! It's informative enough that my husband and I were intrigued, but fun enough for the whole family. The staff were all professional and friendly. Highly recommend!!

Our tour was interesting and informative . It started with a cog train ride down a steep slope to mine entrance and reboarding a transport 1/2 mile into the 1800's workings of the mine. 43 degrees but the tour supplied the heavy coats and helmut....More

I can't add anymore to what others have said, as they have said it all. The tour includes a walk-through, a train ride and a tram ride into the mine. Make sure to wear closed-tied shoes as it is wet and muddy in the mine....More

This tour is well worth the trip! Brian was our Tour Guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the mine and the history. The mine is 43 degrees but they give you heavy jackets to wear but still plan accordingly. You will not be disappointed.

There is no need to reserve tickets, but wherever you travel, you never know if the same great idea occurred to everyone else at the same time. It's a good idea for any kind of tour to make sure you're there in plenty of... More
