Show you around and then they take you down into the mine. If you have any problems walking then don't go down into the mine. They have been digging here since 1549.

A pretty good experience, to learn about mining activities of the region, and learning some good stories, about the legends of the city

The place is very charming and you can take great photos. The mine is just a cave you go down 60+ steps. Then you have a small explanation of how things work. You'll be out in less than an hour.

We all know Guanajuato for its rocky streets, its participation in Mexico's Independence, Don Quijote and the Cervantino; yet what many might not know is that Guanajuato is/was also famous for its mines. This small museum/mine proved a brief introduction into the mining industry that...More

We visited a couple mines near GTO and this was a fun trip but it felt more like a disneyland version of a mine visit compared to the El Nopal Mine. You descend quite a few stairs into the mine, take a brief tour with...More

Similar to other mining visits, the explanation is conventional and the descent is more dangerous (due to the slippery surface) than illustrative of the working conditions of the miners. Outside there are the usual shops but all in all it is not an essential visit...More
