  • I didn't expect to find a place to pay homage as pretty mining like this does. The Hall of Fame is very cool and pay due homage to those who have done so much to develop a more essential to all life and that most don't value and you can't imagine the your importance. The Museum is fantastic with reproductions of old and new mines, models that show how are the activities, explanations about the importance of mining and great information about the districts miners from Colorado and others. I was impressed and left happy. Only missed 1 sticker on little shop of souvenirs. ;)

  • Very fine asset to Historic Leadville, great representation of the mining industry,history, geology.many interactive displays.Kid& adults alike. I've lived in Colo.most of my life and I'm ashamed to say I just went (said for years...)they recommend 2-21/2hrs. If you like to read things as I do make it 3 1/2-4! Loved it, planning to go back next year.😀
  • Extremely large collection of minerals! Fascinating history of mining! Educational & fun. Might just be the best use of 3 - 4 hours of your time in Leadville. Bring the kids!
  • Positively facinating! Do not miss it. Walking through the created mineshafts was so much fun! The exhibits were very well done!
  • Awesome exhibits with lots of local history and a emphasis on how mining shaped the area. Would recommend spending at least 2 hours to take everything in.
  • Living history. Family friendly. Cool place.
