We had a large tour group come in and we needed up being 45 minutes later than what we thought and they kept the museum and mine open for our group later than they usually would. Our students loved the tour and the tour guides...More

You might want to contact them with this question. As I remember it from two visits, people need to be able to get in and out of a mine train car (up a step or two and sit a bit hunched over) and in the mine walk on somewhat uneven ground, bent over in a few places, although it might be possible to avoid most of the bending over by hanging back a bit in those places. .
