  • 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.
