  • Cool destination, with some excellent and varied exhibits. My favorite was the underground mining portion, which was obsessively detailed and thoroughly engrossing. Check it out.
  • One of the best museums in the state. The mine section is amazing, as good as any mine tour in the region. Modern and just the right size for a morning visit, only the best is on display. If you're in the area, don't miss it!

  • Great exhibits. One can get a guide if the request is made in advance.
  • Very cool museum! Great exhibits, tons of historical information!
