  • I am so happy this slice of American history is being so well preserved. I loved looking at all the technology used over the years and the underground mine tour was awesome! Having docents who are veterans of the mining industry brings a whole new level of understanding to the history of mining.
  • Great place to visit with kids! Do the underground tour and be fascinated with the mining bells. I got to ring too! Provides kids with cool way to understand mining in Montana.
  • Great way to stretch your legs on a long drive across the country! Historic and interesting to see the old machinery.
  • Cool and interesting place to visit and learn about our mining past. If you're big into steampunk/industrial, this is the place for you! Plan to spend a whole day to look around the buildings and exhibits. There is a lot to see!
  • It's an interesting display of turn of the century life and mining
