Along with a fun and historical mine tour in Breckenridge's only real open mine, you can also experience life as it was in the late 1800s. Take a trip on our Colorado Gold Rush tour with live actors, and learn more about mining towns in the old days. In the summer we have two burros (miniature donkeys) who love to roam around and enjoy being petted and being fed! Spend hours searching for YOUR fortune by gold panning the ore rich river. Kids (and adults!) can enjoy the ore chute slide and walk round the historic site.
Gold Rush Experience includes:
• Gold Mine Tour
• Colorado Gold Rush show (It's funny, and slightly scary!)
• Gold Panning
• Slide the Ore Chute
• Historic Walk
