We were fortunate to be met by Jim down in one of the lower buildings. He's an excellent guide. Also, the carriage house is full of a large variety of carriages with good explanations about their notable features.

Very interesting museum. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about mining in the old west. Also, it was nice seeing some of the old wagons that were used.
