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
When near Mojave or Death Valley on Hwy 395 or Hwy 58, take an hour or so to visit the Borax factory and open pit mine. The visitor center is high atop a hill and gives you a great view of the operation. After watching the informative movie about the history of the mine since the late 1800's and how... 更多
Thank you for you review. We love our visitors to see all three of the museum/visitor centers in Boron. Our... 更多
If you have an extra 4 or so hours, be sure to check this place out. Never realized how much borax is used in everyday household products. Great view of the massive mining site. Simply amazing! Be sure to check out the nearby 20 Mule Team Museum as well.
The visitor's center is located on a high rise above the plant on a maintained dirt road past the entrance. We received a good education on the uses of borax. Many wonderful exhibits. Staff was helpful. Good short video. Clean outside restrooms. Good gift shop and photo ops. Good views of the strip mine, which is 800 feet deep, and... 更多
So, after passing the signs on the highway saying there is a visitor center, I decided to stop in with the family and check it out. What an awesome place! Great information on the minerals they dig out of the ground and what it is used for. Great view of the open pit mine which is HUGE! fun items outside... 更多
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are always so pleased when our visitors enjoy their time with us. Next... 更多
Boron was described as being depressed but this visitor center is anything but. Built into the side of the hill to escape the heat there is loads of interesting stuff about the open cast mine and mining in death valley. Check out the speed restriction signs! The idea is to make you read them twice and they are so odd... 更多
Thank you David for taking the time to write a review. We enjoy hearing from our visitors. Our speed signs... 更多
Stopped by the visitor center while making my way from SF to Las Vegas. Watched a film, then got a good view into the open pit mine. At one point the docent mentioned that what appeared to be a mine opening was actually the entrance to a huge fallout shelter! Apparently this was primarily for the use of folks from... 更多
