My friend loves mines so I was dragged along. It was a great audio tour - around 30 minutes. Just about my limit for this sort of thing. I preferred to chat to the old husky guy at the gift shop. Now he must have...More

The mining museum/tour is a definite must-see when in Creede. I loved it. Dress warmly or borrow one of the many coats they've got available for tourists. I learned so much about mining. I think that families with children 8-12 would love it. I have...More

Relatively short walking tour. You can get a guide if you want, think about 12.00 per person. We opted for the audio tour which I think did an excellent job at 6.00 per person. You will probably need a jacket as the temperature is a...More

To understand Creede you have to understand a bit about mining and this walk through self-guided tour underground is wonderful. It familiarizes you with mining methods from 1890 to today. It takes maybe 20 minutes and is so worth it!

The Underground Mining Museum is a great stop. It is loaded with information about the history of mining in the Creede area. Try to catch one of the tours guided by a local miner.
