Absolutely amazing experience at the National Mining Hall of Fame & Museum. The exhibits were informative, detailed and fun. The staff lady was extremely nice and helpful, she even gave me a free tube to protect my poster I bought at the gift shop. 100% recommend hitting this place up if you are into history and science! Also, give yourself a couple hours to walk through because there’s a lot of information and rooms to see.

This mining museum is very thorough. My husband loves minerals and said it was the biggest he’s been to. I am not as into minerals but found it to still be very enjoyable and learned a good amount.

We had nothing to do on a cold winter day so we looked around Leadville for something interesting. The mining hall filled nearly two hours for us and told us the interesting story of one of their famous residents “Baby Doe”.

Such a great museum with tons of local history. If you’re looking for something to do off the slopes, this is it. Not to be missed, especially with kids!!

If you are visiting Leadville anytime except during the snow season, you probably have more than a passing interest in Leadville's historic and colorful past. If you are interested in the mining past or the railroad past, this is the place to visit. Watch the movie to see how the mining and railroad past all fits together. The story of Horace Tabor and Baby Doe, and the Baby Doe Matchless Mine are all explained here. Also, if you are going to hike on the Mineral Trail (old abandoned railroad grades) the presentations here will make your hiking much more memorable.
