"Sierra Silver Mine Tour" Wallace Things to Do Tip by 10eke

Wallace Things to Do: 15 reviews and 56 photos


The Sierra Siver Mine Tour was a must-see for us. Coming from a coal-mining region in Belgium, we feel somewhat related to the mining communities in the Northwest. Just like the sierre silver mine, the coal mines are closed now. The tour starts from the ticket office in downtown Wallace, a trolley males a narrated tour through Wallace and transports the visitors to the mine. The guide is a retired miner with a true heart for his mining career. Although he has survived a bad mining accident he still loves the miner's way of life. He presents a clear picture of the life in the mine and can answer all your questions. He demonstrates the still active equipment in the mine, which is quite impressive (and noisy).
