Delaware Copper Mine Tours
If you have time to visit only one attraction in the Keweenaw, make it Delaware Mine, the area's premier tourist attraction, where copper was mined from 1847 - 1887. The tour will take you down Shaft No. 1 to the first level (at a depth of 110 ft.) where you'll see pure veins of copper exposed in the mine walls along with other geologic interests.
Above ground, browse the gift shop/museum or take the walking trails to the mine ruins, saw mill, large antique engine display, and train collection featuring "G" scale and 7 1/2" gauge. Stop by the zoo to visit the miniature deer or search the rock piles of souvenir copper. Come see where copper mining began. Spend a day in Delaware, where you won't just see history - you'll feel it!
Open seven days a week, mid-May to mid-October. Located 12 miles south of Copper Harbor on US-41.
