This 44 acre museum exhibits more than a century of American history and brings it to life. Explore more than 50 structures, ranging from the 100 ft high headframe to the many buildings of Hell Roarin' Gulch, a turn of the century mining town. Our displays and exhibits focus on mining and the related culture and ethnic groups that made Butte, MT their home. The World Museum of Mining offers an underground mine tour that takes you 65 ft under the surface to the shaft station of the Orphan Girl mine. Get fitted with a miner's hard hat, cap lamp and battery belt to experience life underground! Space is limited and reservations are recommended. The World Museum of Mining is open daily at 9:00 am April - October. From time to time weather conditions affect our ability to offer all available services. « less

On December 29, 1985 "Our Lady" was placed on the East Ridge to overlook Butte, Montana. The base sits at an elevation of 8510 feet above sea level and 3500 feet above the mile high city of Butte. The statue, lighted and visible at night, is a spectacular sight to behold. « less

Built in 1890, the Dumas' sole purpose was to serve the predominately male population that sprang out of Butte's mining boom as a house of prostitution. It operated successfully for 92 years until its closure in 1982 -making it America's longest running "house of ill repute". As Butte's only remaining brothel, the Dumas' is now a museum and gift shop offering seasonal tours of the infamous brothel. A registered National Historic Landmark, the Dumas is also the last vestige of the Victorian Brothel style architecture that exists in the United States. The new owners are working diligently to preserve, restore, and protect the nearly 125 year old structure from meeting the fate of the other brothels and parlor houses that lined Butte's Red-Light district, which was once the largest in the West. As the 'last house on the line' one can truly, 'feel the nature and charm of the old West at the Dumas.' ~Westward Ho! « less
