I’ve been wanting to take the boys to see the copper mine ever since we moved to Utah. Yesterday I saw a facebook post from Dresses & Messes that the mine is offering free admission for the month of May, so we loaded up and drove on over. It really is quite an impressive sight even from miles away.
The museum inside has a lot of rock specimens, replica’s of the mine, a movie about how it all works, and of course a lot of little trucks and tractors (Grant was really upset that he couldn’t play with the trucks, he kept saying “get trucks out!”)
And as a bonus the road we took to get there went right past the Up house…
If you live in Utah, go print off your free coupon and head on over, it’s a fun experience and you can’t beat the price! Plus the gift shop has awesome copper postcards and a great selection of copper bracelets for under $10 (a great gift for out-of-towners).
