Deleware Copper Mine Tours
A unique combination of entertainment and education, the Deleware is the Keweenaw's oldest attraction!
We are located on the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula in the northernmost part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, in the historic ghost town of Delaware. Just off U.S. 41, we are 12 miles south of Copper Harbor and 38 miles north of Houghton.
Hours are 10:00am until 6:00pm est, 7 days a week, from mid-May until mid-October.
Because our tours are self-guided, we are able to keep our prices affordable for even the largest families. Self-guided tours also let you explore the mine site at your leisure. Any questions that might not be answered by the signs can be addressed in the Gift Shop.
Don't forget to say hello to the infamous Oreo and Snickers, the pet skunks that help owners Loni and Tom run the day to day operations of the mine.
