My wife and I went hiking in the mountain ranges near Leadville. While this was an enjoyable and spectacular hike it was also a very informative one that we found historically significant. A visit to the national mining museum simply rounded out our great day and added immensely to our knowledge and appreciation of the area. The museum was splendid and I was surprised at the quality of the displays and the overall appearance of the museum. An extremely pleasant and friendly staff only added to our experience. If you ever visit Leadville a stop at the national mining museum is a must. Thank you.
So glad you got to experience both our beautiful outdoors and the museum. We couldn't agree more that if you are in the area you should make time to explore our 25,000 sq ft museum. Thank you for the complimentary review of our exhibits and taking the time to encourage others to visit!
