  • Better than expected. Some of the exhibits are showing their age, but if you have the time and willingness to explore the whole museum you will have a new found respect for the historical aspect of the mining industry. The underground tour was great, my kids favorite part of the museum.
  • Lots of fun. Not as scary as I thought it would be, going down the mine a hundred feet underground. Everything is old, and you could only see the above ground attractions from the outside, but they have some neat stuff. If you like rocks, go to the mineral museum at the Montana tech college.
