Really well done, great efforts to recreate mining story on technical and social level through multisensory experience, easily requires three hours. if you are travelling from vancouver to whistler you drive past door making this very worthy Pitstop. Transport links are abysmal. We booked return tour with benz tours, and despite the additional expense, was well worth it. Well, everything seems great value compared to whistler! The underground bit is not very deep, the recreation of mining techniques really fascinating, despite the shocking disregard for worker welfare, the mill as the sunlight pours in is quite breathtaking. Go if you can.

We enjoyed the museum and the tour. We were aware of the stairs that needed to be climbed to get to the train, However, we were not aware that we would be leaving the train in the tunnel to watch a few demonstrations. The ground was wet and uneven. We managed ok, but Just something to be aware of if anyone in your group has any mobility difficulties.

This visit was great, our guide Eva knew how to interest all the participants. She is passionate about her subject. She showed us the activities as they were done in the past using equipment dating from before the mine closed in 1923. This equipment was still fully functional. The Boom part is particularly well done. Christian

Very interesting and very informative visit; the guide was both very friendly and humorous. It's very well organized. I recommand it.
