  • What a find! We learned so much from the friendly, and well-informed staff - worth the trip! We were so impressed.  more »
  • very nicely organized, showed a lot of history for the town. The mine was 12 levels deep and the etched maps that were on display were astounding!  more »
  • We learned so much here. My husband said the rest of the weekend "we didn't learn that in school",He grew up in idaho. I liked the mine like shaft, I would have loved going in a real one...maybe next ...  more »

  • A charming facility with very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and attentive staff. The exhibits were so well presented and complete that my only complaint is that we did not have the time in our daily schedule to fully appreciate all that was there to see. I bought one book and I ought to have bought six. We were charmed by the town and delighted by the museum.
  • I used to live here. Beautiful country
  • Can't say I'm all that interested in mining .... but I am a wildland firefighter and I have a lot of interest in the 1910 Big Burn, there is a modest display dedicated to that massive fire .... the cool thing is they have the original Pulaski. So here's a selfie with me and Ed Pulaski's original Pulaski.
  • The staff here are friendly and welcoming. The museum itself is quite small, but there's so much to learn about and see. My kids absolutely loved the scavenger hunt the staff gave them. It really got them to take an interest in the descriptions of all the items and what purpose they served. The motion sensor exhibit was quite neat and lent itself to immersing visitors in the "mining experience." My grandpa bought me some vials of gold and silver as well as some ash when I was young. I always treasured these, and now my kids have had the same special experience. They proudly display their vials on their shelf at home and talk about the museum from time to time.
  • Excellent tour by a miner with a wealth of knowledge of the mine and mining operations.
