The Quincy Experience
Experience Quincy like never before! Each tour takes approximately two and a quarter hours, allowing for plenty of time for questions and discussion. The underground portion of the tour takes more than an hour, and the temperature in the mine is a refreshing 43°, so be sure to bring a jacket and perhaps some long pants. The walk-in is approximately 2000 feet, takes 12-15 minutes, and is at leisurely pace with stops to learn about the history of the adit as well as an introduction to local geology.
Please be aware that it is a wet walking surface, so please wear appropriate footwear. Sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed footwear may be hazardous to wear (and are certainly not recommended during winter tours!). This is an extensive tour; we don’t mind if guests bring backpacks with snacks and drinks (especially comfort food for our younger guests!). Transportation for the underground tour is available for anyone with mobility issues. Quincy is a fully handicapped accessible site: please call if there are questions or concerns about your upcoming visit to the Quincy Mine–we’re here to help!
