Walk Through Our Mine

There are times that Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate with planned outdoor activities in the Upper Peninsula, but that shouldn’t stop an adventure! Our interactive 100 Foot Mine and Rock Room provides a fun (and dry) alternative to when the hiking and biking trails get soggy.

 

You’ll see artifacts from local idled mines, including a mine cart from the Quincey Mine, various photographs of the Ropes Gold Mine during its operation, and core samples. The displays act as a tribute and catalog of area history, and a fascinating teaching tool.

 

Upon completion of the tour, ‘Miners’ receive a free hat to commemorate the experience, and can visit our Rock Room for gifts to keep or share.
