  • Extremely impressed with this amazingly affordable $8 (price at time of review for one adult) tour. Well worth every penny and more! Staff (the female working the counter) was very helpful and passionate about the historical society and even told us some interesting facts about the location. From the early day jail to mining history, the museum offers a great look of the area's past!
  • Thoroughly impressed with this museum. The people behind it have put thought, care, and passion into this experience and it absolutely shows! Well worth a visit!
  • One of the best mining museums that I have visited! Don't miss it if you like local history.
  • History is the best use your mind n learn
  • This is the go to museum for history of this area!
