After your tour, visit the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center’s spacious exhibit hall, where you’ll find exciting information about the development of Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), and the history of Lead and the Homestake Mine. Exhibits include historic photographs, videos, science and mining artifacts, and a 3-D model of the underground passages, or drifts, from the surface down 8,000 feet!

 

From the observation deck, view the 1,000-foot-deep Open Cut, the iconic 1,200-feet-deep iconic landmark in the Black Hills, and see the varieties of rock that created this unique landscape. Admission to the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center and self-guided tours are free.
