Tour experiences will include the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Learn about the modern refining methods while helping to preserve the district’s 1890’s history - all tour proceeds go to the Museum to help offset operations and building renovation costs.

 

This summer the mine tours will be available May 26 through Sept. 3 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., daily except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 8 and 9, 15 and 16 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during the summer weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person plus a small online booking fee - an affordable way for the entire family to see a real working gold mine. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours. Please be sure to reserve your tour dates (June is the slowest and the best time to make a reservation) as they are very popular and fill up quickly.
