Life underground is pretty cool! A constant 68 degrees with no humidity. There are a lot of Hollywood movies stored down there. A very interesting tour.
One of a few places in the world where you can see how salt was mined. It is also a storage area for Movie films and costumes used. Trams haul you through the mining area which is over 600 feet below ground.
This is a really unique and interesting place to visit. The two train rides are different, so you should do both (they are included in your ticket price). My friend is claustrophobic, but didn’t have any problems since it is wide open and tall ceilings in most of it. I enjoyed the fact that the tour is self-guided so you... More
I was not sure about this when my wife suggested it, but now I am convinced. This is a great place to take the kids. You really don't feel like you are so far underground, and you kind of forget about it till you are on the hoist coming back up. A couple of small kids didn't like the 'dark... More
This is not to be missed when in the area. You need a few hours to go over 600 feet underground to learn about salt mines. This is not scary and once underground it is a huge area that anyone will feel comfortable in. The set up is outstanding and fun. We learned so much.
i went here in the fall of 2011. my friends and i really enjoyed the museum. being 600 ft underground was not even noticeable felt like you were in a basement, wide open spaces, would definitely do this again
Was visiting a friend in Wichita and his son had just turned 4 so I took his son to the mine. Very interesting. We stayed 2 and a half hours and my 4 year old stayed engaged until the end...he was ready to go back up. We had a great time.
You are taken down about 700 feet below the surface and then can tour through the tunnels with exhibits showing the history of salt being taken out of the ground. Great place to visit and enjoy.
The Salt Mine was covered on the Dirtiest Jobs show. But you will still be impressed with what actually goes on underground. There is a lot of history on how the salt mine was found, developed and still goes on. Two rides, the train and dark ride, are very much worth the cost and time to do.
It was very interesting and is a good way to break up a journey across Kansas. Do allow a little more than the 2 hours they suggest if you do everything. The price is the only thing that prevented a 4 star rating.
