A great museum to learn about the history of copper mining in the Appalachian mountains and about the environmental impacts of over a century of mining. The restoration efforts are amazing and there's a great view of the landscape from just across the museum's entrance. Only $5/adult and you can easily spend an hour or two between the museum and short outdoor walking tour.
Really enjoy the family events that are sponsored by the museum. Really enjoy the interactive experience provided inside the museum. Very educational and insightful learning experience for all ages.
