  • The old historic building that the museum was really cool. 90% of the museum is dedicated to Flamenco dancing. It was interesting but a strange. I would have though that the museum would be centered around the town and it’s history and heritage. No the less our 7 and 5 year old kids enjoyed it. They have a little scavenger hunt where they can do and get some free colored rocks. There are some Flamenco costumes that you can try on and get some funny pictures. The museum is technically free but they ask for a donation of about $5/person.
  • Sunday visit very enjoyable. The variety of exhibits and gift shop kept everyone entertained. Very knowledgeable staff were a pleasure to talk with. Definitely recommend.
  • Silver City Museum is housed in a lovely building. The displays are well organized and there is a lot of information about local history. The staff were friendly and the exhibits are interesting. Well worth a visit!
  • The Silver City museum is a great look into the past of this old mining town. The origins and continued importance of mining are on display, showing how much of it's history is owed to the prospectors. The staff were polite and helpful, and the care in the displays showed through. Great stuff for a 3 dollar donation.
  • Wonderful little museum. I also like to bring my 2 small dogs there to run around the yard.
