What to Expect What to Expect

Your tour of the ARGO will include a view in the past history of the ARGO Mill and Tunnel through viewing a history movie that will explain its’ origins.  We will offer a demonstration of mining equipment outside the gift shop and tour office, then transport you up to our ore mine the Double Eagle.  From there, you will enter the 5 story ARGO Mill and descend through the myriad of artifacts left in place from the days the Mighty Argo was in full production.  After you reach the bottom, you will enjoy looking through the fantastic array of mining artifacts and equipment at the base of the ARGO Mill in our museum room.  It is chock full of antique photos that are great visual representations of what took place here at the ARGO and in the Idaho Springs area during the Rocky Mountain Gold Rush Era.  When you come out of the ARGO Mill, you will find yourself in our panning yard where we offer a gold panning lesson and assist you in finding real gold ore.  And – you keep what you find!  We also offer gold panning and gem panning separately from the tours for late arrivers and those who have limited time but would like to enjoy some of the ARGO experience.

I'm mechanically inclined and a history buff so the trip appealed to me.
