  • A lot to see. You just wonder through the area and peek in windows of stores and such. Hard to find, had to go through the college area to get there. 
  • Well worth a trip to downtown Butte if travelling south on I15. The museum is set up like a 1890's mining town and mine. Over 60 buildings. The scarecrow competition was very cool. Enjoyed seeing a re...  more »
  • Sadly even in low season in October the 12:30 underground mine tour was booked out by tour groups from Yellowstone so we are unable to do this tour. Also, despite what web site says the underground to...  more »

  • Great way to learn about mining and history of Butte, Mo. Our tour guide was an actual miner from the area in the '60s. There is a player piano, mineral exhibit, and little town to view in addition to the tour. I highly recommend the tour ($37 for 2 adults). Easy access to the mine through a sloped portal that was cut into the mine for tourists. You don't go very deep (~65ft) but you still get a feel for what the miners lived with. We were told the tour would last about 2 hours but our lasted closer to 3. Tour depends on # of questions asked I'm sure.
  • I loved this place when I visited. It's existence is an act of love for the past. I wish more people would be more generous with their donations, so they can get down to finishing all the restorations and developments they have planned.
  • Our tour guide, Jim, was kind enough to take us on our tour early since the 12:30 tour didn't have any reservations, and we got a private tour. He was a great conversationalist who did a wonderful job of explaining everything, while throwing in entertaining stories and tid bits along the way. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The "town" displays were really neat, and since we came early in the season we practically had the place to ourselves. Really cool place!
  • The tour guide talks too long about himself. People came to see history and the underground mine. Less talking, more tour please.
  • A great educational museum. It gives a great insight into the miners lives and how copper mines work. A must with school age children.
