Although this doesn't require much time, it is worth taking 20 minutes during a trip to Butte to enjoy another side to the Berkeley Pit as well as acres of settling and tailings ponds! It is always good to reflect on the history of the...More

It is definitely worth the stop. There is probably no other place in the world with such a location among so much abandoned mine buildings and equipment. The attractions for me was not the memorial itself but seeing the 1900s mining structures frozen in time.

They have done a wonderful job with this monument. Easily accessible. Lots of historical information on hand, both written and audio. I have to admit, it was quite haunting to be walking around the display reading letters from the trapped miners, listening to music from...More

The whole area being restored from the mining was interesting and worth the stop. The Memorial Overlook provides a beautiful view and reminds us of the struggles for immigrants.

It is hard to picture how over 160 hard rock miners died in this mining accident but it is well explained and honored the heroes of that day almost 100 years ago.
