  • Plan on a ~2:5 hr visit if you want to read/see anything. Great museum of mining and mining-related history. Incredible mineral collection, collection of original historic mining equipment, and mining artwork. Incredible mining-related diorama's everywhere! At least 100+ spread across the museum. Loved the multi-level historical mine walkthrough -- Very realistic. Will be returning with my son at some point.
  • Very interesting and informative museum on mining and minerals. It gave me a new appreciation of the mining industry and it's importance in our everyday lives.
