Bonne Terre Mine is an unique abandoned Mine. When the mine closed in 1962, the pumps wer turned off and it flooded. We maintain the lake level with pumps for the Boat/Walking Tours and the Scuba Dive Operation. All year long the temperature of the mine is 62 degrees. We are open 7 days per week until October 1. Tours start at 9:30 and go every hour on the half hur ie 9:30,10:30,11:30,12:30,1:30,2:30, and last tour at 3:30. Please arrive 30 mins prior to the tour you would like to take.
