Facility:World Museum of Mining
Description:The World Museum of Mining is a 44-acre museum preserving and bringing to life more than a century of American History. Explore more than 50 structures from the 100 foot high headframe of the Orphan Girl Mine to a recreation of a mining town, Hell Roarin' Gulch. Half of the displays focus on the cultural and ethnic history of an 1880s to 1920s mining town, while the other half provide you with a detailed look at the history of mining technology. As one of very few museums to occupy an actual historical mine site, they are uniquely able to portray the story of mining from earliest methods to modern techniques.
