The Sierra Silver Mine Tour
is dedicated to educating current and future generations as to the culture, history and contemporary practices of hard-rock mining in the Coeur d'Alene Mining District. We accomplish this by providing an underground experience for our patrons, guided by retired miners, who provide: first-hand accounts, historically and technically accurate narratives, explanations of exhibits, and give live demonstrations of the operation of pneumatic powered mining machinery. Additionally, on the way to and from the mine, our trolley drivers provide a tour of Wallace and factual narratives of local historical events.
Fun for adventurers of all ages! You will personally experience the actual methods of hard-rock mining in the richest silver district on earth! A retired miner is your guide you through a real silver mine. On the short trip to and from the mine aboard our classic trolley, you will be treated to a narrated tour of Historic Wallace. 1 hour and 15-minute tours depart from the ticket office every 30 minutes with the first departing at 10 am and the last departs at 4 pm.
