  • 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.
  • A nice small town Museum. The lady working while we were there was very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. There is a lot to see in this multi-level museum. If you enjoy minerals, they have specimens from around the world.
  • 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.
  • The only reason I don't 1-star the site for hypocrisy is that it did have some nice exhibits. It's really a museum for mine **owners.** Nothing about Big Bill Heyward, unions, etc.
