We loved the tour! We are also a very inquisitive family. We live just 30 minutes away and I’ve had the Argo Mine tour on my bucket list for years. So this summer I asked the kids for a list of 10 things they wanted to do and a mibe tour was one of them! Sweet! This was my chance. We’ve stopped in Idaho Springs countless times on the way to and from the mountains. The Argo Mill always is a prominent feature in the Idaho Springs landscape and not until you take the Argo Mill and Mine tour will you understand more of the area’s history. The Mill is unique because almost all the equipment is still in place. You also get to venture into the first 200 ft of the 4.2 mile tunnel that drained water from 200+ mines. The engineering and the Argo Mill business model is absolutely fascinating. My 8 year old was totally enchanted! And do was I. A must see when visiting the area! Oh, and we found GOLD!
