I've taken tours and assisted 4th Graders on field trips to the mine. One teacher said I should volunteer at the mine. 8 months later I did, becoming a Docent who now gives mine tours. My new found knowledge of the mine has been great and I love sharing with visitors who come to Kennedy. No, you can't go in the mine, as it's filled with water and inaccessible. Think of how much water is in the Kennedy with it's 5912' shaft and 50 miles of tunnels! I urge any of you in the Jackson, CA area to visit and take a surface tour. Tours last about 60-90 minutes, depending on question asked. The mine is open from March - September on weekends and hours are 10AM to 3PM. This is not an advertisement as much as it is a new found love of the Gold Rush and mining.
