It was a nice little museum, and can be seen in an hour. It is a work-in-process, and they say they are working on labeling the items in the museum. Right now, there is a lot of gold mining items on the first floor, but...More

For 6 dollars you can enter the museum part of the building and explore on your own. It is truly amazing how miners, women and kids lived back in the day.

Happened here by chance. Decided to take a look around and really enjoyed it! If you're into mining or Colorado history this is a great find.

The museum building is very old. It contains hundreds of items which belonged to Lowell Thomas, his family, and artifacts from the mines and residents of the area around 1900 to 1930.The entrance price was very reasonable
