A well done visitor center. We received a friendly welcome from staff. Watched an eight minute film about the mining company and how boron is processed. The museum section tells more about the history of the mine, other minerals associated with boron, and the multiple products that contain this mineral. It's not just about Borax cleanser. The open-pit mine is... 更多
What a nice surprise to find such a well done visitor center in the middle of a working mine. Learned a lot about the number 5 element boron.
This is a great attraction to visit, when driving across CA I-40. We are RV'ers and camped in Boron. The visitors center was less than 5 miles away. We enjoyed the 10 minute video. A nice docent took us to the large bank of windows, & explained features and history of the open pit mine. RV'ers: the visitor center is... 更多
This is a really nice visitor center operated by the Borax mining company. You watch a 10 min. vidio which is not very good then they open the curtains so you can see the mining operations with the huge open pit mine and the precessing facilities to the left. They try to answer any of your questions of what you... 更多
This is one of the largest open pit mining operations in California. They provide an open and free museum to view their history and products. The film they show is like a really long commercial. The displays, models, pit viewing area and of course mule team are interesting. There is also a nice clean restroom.
We were not welcomed by the scouling employee because the first thing she saw was our small, vested, Service Dog. She said she had to let her in but could I carry her so she wouldn't squat in the museum. It gets worse. As I browsed the gift shop, I overheard both employees talking about how anyone could buy a... 更多
Let me first apologize for this misunderstanding on behalf of all employees at the Borax Visitors Center. Our staff take... 更多
We went to the Borax Visitor Center. There is an impressive statue of the 20 mule team which one immediately sees upon parking the car. There are also some other mining related things to see outside the museum. In the museum, there are lots of interesting things to see. There is also a movie on mining and also what products... 更多
Having frown up in the 50's I remember the 20 Mule Team show and ads. Never been there before. Had no idea how borax is used in almost all everyday items. The pit is huge. Very interesting museum worth the trip.
We’ve driven by the Borax Visitor Center on Hwy 395 more times than we can count -- and never took the time to stop and see what it’s all about – until now! Definitely worth the time! There are very interesting exhibits in the Visitor’s Center showing how Borax is processed and how it is used in everyday life –... 更多
Thank you for the wonderful review. We love it when travelers take the time to uncover our hidden treasure and... 更多
