This building is amazing and very under used. It's a great space with some very interesting exhibits. Also it's full on $1500 leather chairs that almost no one has ever sat in. Your tax dollars paid for this place so enjoy : )

They are very informative and gave some very good info for the area. They have a video about the mines if you are interested. Good little gift shop. Make sure you ask about getting a 3 day parking pass if you have a car.

I would give the center itself 4 stars, good exhibits, solid staff, but the fact that they have 10 bicycles for use by anyone with an out of town id pushes them up to a 5.
