Wish we had planned to spend more time going through the museum and tourist attraction! I only viewed the mining pit and read the history at the site and was still in awe of the site. They have a mining truck probably two stories tall available for climbing. The tires are even taller than me and I'm 6'! Worth a... 更多
We stopped here on a summer trip through MN. The view of the active open pit mine was fascinating. There is a building on site with a small gift shop.

We stopped here for an hour on out way south from northern Minnesota and it is definitely worth the stop. You can see the active mine on operation and visiti the field where you can look and visit a real 170 ton mine truck. Kids and adults will love it.
This lovely little welcome center and viewing plateau is accessed through the old streets (now a campground) of Hibbing. Run by some nice little ladies, the Mine View center has great handouts and affords the opportunity to understand the scale of the machines that are at work, even today, in the mine. The vistas are not to missed.
How often do you get to view a giant man- made hole in the ground? Impressive and you can see the active mining process still ongoing. I really enjoyed the abandoned streets of old Hibbing complete with 100 year - old street signs still standing. Gotta love free attractions. Quite often they're the best!
This is definitely a place you need to stop and see! Great views of the mining and very fun things to check out as well! If you are visiting or live in Hibbing, take some time to check this out! It's fun and the views are awesome!
