Help us unravel some Atlas archaeological mysteries on this tour!  For years, the ‘junkyard’ portion of the site lay out of view, buried under decades of vegetation.  After two years of hard work, we’ve uncovered hundreds of artifacts ‘in-situ’ that give us a fascinating glimpse into the ‘outer workings’ of the Atlas mines.  Join an Atlas interpreter on a journey through a landscape of mega earthworks, demolished buildings, and amazing industrial equipment!

Sturdy, fully enclosed shoes are required for this tour.  Due to the nature of the landscape, hiking sandals are not appropriate for this tour.

Artifact collecting and ground disturbance are strictly prohibited on site.  This tour does not take visitors underground. Children 0-5 years old are free, but require booked tickets.
