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–please call ahead if you need special assistance. 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!
