Tours of the Cripple Creek & Victor Mining District will be offered again this summer from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The tours will highlight gold rush history as well as modern and historic gold mining.
The guided tours will provide the chance to learn about the district’s unique gold rush history – including gold mining old and new, pioneers, and ghost towns.
The tours will be conducted using transportation and drivers from Cripple Creek Parks & Recreation and tour guides from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. All of the tour proceeds from the new tours will benefit Parks & Recreation and the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, furthering the missions of both community-minded organizations as a win-win fundraising option for both.
Check VictorMuseum.com for tour times and dates. The cost is $15 per person plus a small online booking fee – an affordable way to get a guided tour of the history that made the gold camp famous. Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours for safety reasons. Be sure to reserve your preferred tour dates soon as some dates sell out quickly. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to tour times.
