  • Presents a fascinating story of how uranium is mined. The mine recreation is really neat. This is well worth the $3 admission cost.

  • Super cool! Very underrated museum, in my opinion. If you're staying in ABQ, it's definitely worth the 1 hour drive to see. It's quite a small building, I didn't think there would be much inside, but I was very wrong. It's 2 stories, with the top one having plenty of different minerals, mining tools and the history about them, a movie theatre, and even a section for ancient Native American artifacts such as arrowheads, pottery, and buttons. The bottom floor is what really makes this museum different- you take the elevator down and it opens up to a replica mineshaft, they even have a gate you have to open when you exit the elevator! They did a very good job creating this mine replica- not only does it look and feel like a real one, but you can even smell the oils from the mining equipment. Very well done. Their gift shop selection is a little small I would like to add, but that's not a huge deal in my opinion. Overall, this is a great place for adults and children alike.
  • Ladies at the front desk where very nice and informative! Pretty cool place if your in the area
