  • Would never have guessed how cool this museum is. The actual mine cave is the best part. Loved the old pics and maps of Leadville
  • Very interesting multi level museum with each floor being filling with fun and educational facts about the history of mining, not only in the surrounding area, but all over the world! Go into the Moon and outer space exhibit and you will even see rocks from the moon and meteors that fell from space. I like the interactive displays and even the mock caves, mining shafts and tunnels that they have through out the whole building. Anybody interested in geology would love this place. Go up to the fourth floor terrace and see an amazing view of the whole town of Leadville.
  • If you like rocks or gems you won't be disappointed. I was surprised they had so many different minerals on display, they have a huge amount of beautiful specimens from all over the world.
  • Was at the museum around two on June 16 2016 and thought the museum was great but the guy who was working there was a complete jerk. He said he was a retired miner but he is really in the wrong job. Not friendly and on our way out he told me that I couldn't use the drinking fountain. Worst museum experience ever.
  • Interesting museum on history of mining in the area. Extensive collection of rock samples.
