went with 5 boys- age range 4-12. Who would have thought that smashing rocks would provide hours of fun? They want to go back.

We were all able to find lots of "diamonds" without having to try too hard! Reasonable prices for mining!

“Herkimer Diamond Mine”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

This facility includes a museum, a store where both rough and finished stones can be purchased, and the actual mine where you can search for the crystals that are the Herkimer diamonds.

this would be a fun thing for kids, and adults can also enjoy a visit here. There is also a KOA Campground across the 2 lane road, with cabins as well as RV & tent space.
