Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine Tours

Experience mining old and new this summer and explore gold rush history past and present at the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The Museum, which is has operated in its current location for over 50 years, will be open weekends starting in April and will open on a daily basis starting on Saturday, May 27 at 9:30 a.m. The museum will again be hosting tours of the Newmont Mining Corporation’s Cripple Creek & Victor operations near Victor.

Modern mine tours will start May 28 leaving from the Museum. Tour experiences will offer the chance to see giant haul trucks, shovels and drill rigs in action in the large surface mine between Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado. Watch boulders being crushed into gravel and 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 28 through Sept. 4 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily, except no tours will be held on Thursdays. In addition, tours are offered Sept. 9 and 10 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Check VictorColorado.com for additional tour times and dates during July weekends. The cost is $8.50 per person - 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.
