  • They have a lot of information about the mining history of the town & a really interesting walk through display museum of historical items from the town.
  • It's nice to have a museum in Joplin. However, the exhibits are in need of a refresh. It's hard to see detail on lots of booths because you can't get very close.
  • Nice way to spend the morning. My 5 year old enjoyed it!
  • Small and random stuff but still pretty cool
  • Amazing artifacts and history of the SWMO region
