  • We were only able to do the gem mining and visit the store and entrance to the cave, but still loved it. It is about 1 hour out of Boone. The gem mining had a lot of finds we have never gotten before....  more »
  • We decided to try the mining. It was fun and we found some cool stones. It’s a one and done but fun thing to try.  more »
  • Excellent experience awesome crew. Very informative. Stopped at the mine and gift shop. Then over to flume and looked for gemstones for about2 hours. And then shopped in that gift store. We did not get to go to museums upstairs as they were closing. Will be back. Ty.
  • Great little place! Museum was cool, mine was perfect for the attention span of little kids, who like feeding the fishes! Gem panning was fun...totally recommend getting a big bucket because you get much bigger pieces, we had 3 adults and 4 kids all panning a $75 bucket and each of us got an amethyst and several bigger gem/minerals as well! All had fun...many picnic tables next to the big store/exhibit so we had brought lunch and enjoyed just hanging out!
