I really enjoyed taking my children on this tour. Finding historical spots in the area close to home is great. History is a great way to fill our children with proper knowledge especially when it creates more questions on the how's and whys of things
Nice exhibit and tour guide. Would have been better if they talked more about the early history of mineral point.
