  • This museum gives a good history of the area along with many artifacts. There is also machinery and buildings outdoors from the mining era. Very interesting and worth a stop.  more »

  • Definitely the best small town museum I’ve ever been to. It was free, but they also accept donations. The staff are super knowledgeable and very friendly. They have a bunch of exhibits regarding the Native American, mining, and military history of the region. They also have artifacts outside including an old military guard station, some outhouses and mining equipment. We enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt. They have a historical library on site, and books for sale talking about the region.
  • Not a very large Museum but it is jam-packed was incredible local history definitely a must see.
  • Everyone is very nice and the information is put together very well! Easy to navigate, Ann's there are a ton of things you can actually touch.
  • Met with one of the founders. Very polite person. He told us about a lot of history about this place. Many interesting collections.
  • Small but packed full of history
