Kansas Underground Salt Mine Adds Train Ride

KSCB News - March 10, 2011 8:21 am

The Kansas Underground Salt Museum in Hutchinson plans to open its new train ride next week.

Dubbed the Salt Mine Express, the train will travel through mined-out chambers in the salt deposits 650 feet underground. Until now, the chambers have not been available to visitors.

Museum director Linda Schmitt says in a news release that the area is pretty much as miners left it years ago.

The narrated ride takes about 12 minutes and covers almost half a mile.
