Labeled the "Richest Hole on Earth,” where open-pit mining began in 1903, Kennecott’s Bingham Canyon Mine is the largest man made excavation on earth: more than 3/4 of a mile deep and 2-1/2 miles wide, and is listed as a National Historic Site.

The award-winning Visitors Center was moved, expanded and modernized during the winter to a new site 300 feet lower within the huge Mine. The 6000 square foot facility is filled with interesting exhibits and displays, four video stations and a 90-seat theater showing a new 16-minute video.

8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. seven days a week.
Season:
April 1 to October 31
