Gold Camp Adventure Tours presented by Victor Lowell Thomas Museum at Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, Victor CO

Tours of the Cripple Creek & Victor Mining District will be offered this summer from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The new tours will highlight gold rush history and gold mining.

The tours will be conducted using transportation and drivers from Parks & Recreation and an experienced tour guide from the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum. The tours will take the place of the public mine tours that were in pre-COVID-19 times offered by the Newmont Cripple Creek & Victor mine. The mine tours have been discontinued for mine operations safety purposes. All of the tour proceeds from the new tours will benefit Parks & Recreation and the Victor Lowell Thomas Museum, furthering the missions of both community-minded organizations as a win-win fundraising option for both.

The tours will provide the chance to learn about the district’s unique gold rush history – including gold mining old and new, pioneers, and ghost towns. Tours can be packaged with a walking tour of the Sunnyside Cemetery near Victor on select Saturdays this summer as well as with museum admission and gold panning.

Only children 5 years of age and older are allowed on the tours for safety reasons. Be sure to reserve your preferred tour dates soon as some dates are already sold out.

Reservations may be made online at VictorMuseum.com or calling the museum through May 23 on weekends or 7 days a week starting May 29 at the number below. The maximum on each tour is 26 people. Larger groups may be accommodated by special request. Masks will be required on the tours until further notice.

In addition to the tours, you can step back in time and pan for gold at the museum. Panning is included in the museum’s admission price and is a great way to spend an hour in cool, sunny Victor this summer.

Expand your adventure even more and check out local museums and attractions. The Victor Lowell Thomas Museum as well as the Cripple Creek District Museum and Old Homestead House Museum, will offer tour-goers discounted admission prices.
