  • We had an excellent tour of the Orphan Girl Mine led by Michael. The World Museum of Mining focuses on the mining in Butte although there are displays that weren’t used in the Orphan Girl Mine. The displays in the mine are interesting. They have an eclectic collection of items on the property-some vintage from the era and town and some from other areas. Much restoration is still needed on the mines and grounds. Included in the modest price is admission to the doll house/doll displays and rock display from around the world. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.
  • This was an interesting tour, but I thought Matt, our guide relied too much on our questions when giving the information. So if you go, ask a lot of questions and you will get the answers. Matt, our guide appeared to really know the information. But over all it is worthwhile going on this tour if you are in Butte, MT. It was very interesting to go so deep into the earth and see the actual tunnels where so many miners have worked for over 100 years.
