Where are we going today?

The Bingham Canyon Mine Visitors Center is an adventure for the whole family! Explore their hands-on exhibits, take a picture next to the big tyre, and watch the in-put crusher turn tons of copper into the size of soccer balls. It's a giant educational toy box!

Due to monitored geotechnical movement of the Kennecott Utah Copper Bingham Canyon Mine over the winter, the Visitors Center and overlook plaza will not reopen as scheduled April 1. Short- and long-term plans are underway to relocate the Visitors Center.

Follow Kennecott Utah Copper prior to your visit on facebook, twitter or at Kennecott.com/visitors-center for updates on a reopening.

Entry to the mine itself is $5 for automobiles, $25 for mini-tour buses and $50 for a bus.

PLEASE NOTE THE SITE MAY NOT BE OPEN IN 2013 DUE TO MOVEMENT AT THE ISTE PLEASE CHECK BEFORE VISITING.

    You feel very small looking out over one of the worlds largeist mines. Its like visiting a man made grand canyon hard to forget experance. Went there when I was young in the 90s. It gets bigger and deeper every year. The dump trucks are as big as 2 floor houses. People in my family used to work in this mine.

    Not Disneyland or a video game so leave the little kids home. Great information about how we get copper and it's uses. Gift shop selection and prices worth the trip!

    It is an unbelievable sight to see how big this mine is!! It's about 45 minutes outside of salt lake city. We took a bus tour with City Sights in Salt lake City and had a fabulous time! Our driver knew so much about everything they do there and made it very entertaining!
