Very interesting museum. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about mining in the old west. Also, it was nice seeing some of the old wagons that were used.

You wouldn't believe how large the museum is. Looks are deceiving when you see the museum at street level. The great surprise is there are 2 very large buildings displaying old wagons and carriages, as well as a building dedicated to the tools used to...More

They have a big collection of mining equipment, marvelous rock/mineral collection plus many sections/displays of other aspects of life during the mining era. Don’t...More
