  • We spent 4 hours at World Museum of Mining and could easily have spent more. The museum has many features: an underground mine tour; the mine yard of buildings, tools, and machinery; a mining town re-...  more »
  • This updated version of the museum is a solid improvement. The story of America's industrial power, especially in the war years from 1917 - 1945 can be seen in the mining exhibits at the World Museum ...  more »
  • Take a tour of the mine, our guide was very enthusiastic and knowlegable. It is all so interesting, so much to see from the original mines to the reproductions of the whole town. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • This is a great place to bring the youngsters. Great learning and really makes you feel like you where in butte in the early 1900s. Very friendly staff and all kinds of fun for the whole family. Highly recommended by my family, and by me when I was a young kid.. they are adding more and more as the years go on..
  • I had a great time. I think it was worth every penny. I took The Hundred-Foot down tour which is as far as you can go since the rest of the shafts are flooded with water due to poor engineering on the big mind companies part. This is quite a loss there's tons of History down there buried and water not to mention all the environmental and structural issues. As far as the museum goes it's awesome there is a whole small City back there you can check out tons and tons of mining equipment lots of equipment you can actually touch. You can go up to one of the top of the many visible metal structures throughout town this one they allow you to go up on platforms and stairs and see how it actually all works. Our tour guide was a local man who actually taught history! What a bonus extreme shout out to you sir great job I won't mention you by name. But you rock great tour excellent time. Good for kids to as long as they have good footing for the Underground Tour. It gets a little wet and rough here and there
  • If you are in this area I would surely recommend to visit this museum. Really nice buildings and eye for decoration. A must see if you are nearby.
  • Underground is cool the rest isn't worth your money.
  • We got there at 5pm so we didn't make either underground tours. There is a lot to see. Plan on spending 2 or more hours there if you want to see everything. If you can't spend that much time it is still worth stopping to see what you can. There is so much history there.
